Research tells us that reading at grade level by the end of third grade can predict high school graduation. United Way of Miami-Dade invests in programs across our community to help our children to be successful in school and in life.One of those programs, at Centro Mater, helps children to improve their English language skills, making academic success more attainable.When she arrived at Centro Mater, Lissandra was scared people would laugh at her because she could not speak any English; she was having difficulty with her schoolwork and falling behind in her classes. Since enrolling in Centro Mater, Lissandra has improved her English through literacy activities, receives help with her classwork, and dreams about her future.
