Strategies for Success with Literacy combines high level literacy skills with social and emotional development, delivered through engaging teaching methods including (and especially) service learning. This acclaimed approach already implemented with over 40,000 students in the Los Angeles Unified School District and seven other states, helps students of all abilities to become academically and civically engaged and increases their literacy competencies.

Program themes include:
• *Building Skills
• Strengthening Relationships
• Meeting Challenges
• Growing Community
*New components have added leadership and career exploration plus higher order skills that improve research and writing.

This program has been used as part of a district approach to replace dropping out of school with active engagement and commitment to graduation.
