Dollar General gift aids youth literacy clinic

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded a $50,000 youth literacy grant to the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Reading Clinic.

The foundation’s youth literacy grants are awarded to assist with the implementation of new, or to expand already existing, youth literacy programs and the purchase of new technology, books, materials or software for literary programs.

The clinic uses state-of-the-art practices in teaching students with reading difficulties or delays or students with disabilities.

The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Reading Clinic serves children through middle school and provides intensive, individualized, one-on-one tutoring using assessment and instructional methods proven by research to promote reading.
