Empowering Young Readers


EMPOWERING YOUNG READERS. Reading Boot Camp (RBC) received a $1,200 donation from Rockville Gamma Sigma Chapter of Tri Kappa.  RBC provides children (recruits) a motivational springboard to elevate their reading proficiency, learning aptitude and confidence.  The goal of RBC is to develop and empower strong thinkers and decision makers at zero cost to the children.  Tri Kappa is an Indiana statewide philanthropic organization with primary focus on charity, education and culture and has a strong collaborative relationship with RBC, which operates at Mecca.
