Welcome, Exceed Reading Stars!
Updated: Nov 17
We are delighted to welcome Exceed Reading Stars to the Millennium Community Solutions family! They will be offering a thirteen-week course to young people in Lambeth and surrounding boroughs, focusing on building and improving literacy and communication skills.
Thanks to our colleagues at Lambeth Borough Council, we are able to provide Exceed Reading Stars with a free and safe space from which to offer their services. The Jubilee Centre at the Portobello Estate!
The Jubilee Centre was opened in October 2021 after refurbishment by T Brown transformed an unused public space in to a fully equipped digital learning centre. Community TechAid provided computers for the space which will be used for coding and computer classes supported by the National Lottery - these classes are planned to start in January 2022.
The below excerpt was provided by Exceed Reading Stars.
"Exceed Reading Stars is a non-profit organisation created and delivered by young people. Their main and important mission is to bridge the gap between reading age and actual age, providing support to children aged 6-11 to build their confidence and self-esteem while also stimulating their social and personal skills.
ABC; "Achieving Beyond Capabilities" is their 13-week program, created to benefit children in three key areas; comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. By the end of our program, the providing outcomes will be:
· Creating a positive association towards education and learning
· Expanding their range of vocabulary
· Improve confidence to speak publicly and independently
· Assisting the youth-led team in personal literacy projects"
Exceed Reading Stars' programme will start soon, and run weekly on Thursday afternoons from 3:30PM to 7:15PM.
