Out of the Blue is a WashU community service group committed to promoting childhood literacy. We aid Neighborhood Houses’ after school program at Pierre Laclede Elementary School in St. Louis through our student-run reading program. Every Friday, we work with kindergarteners through fifth graders to cultivate a love of learning by reading children’s books and completing fun and engaging activities. Additionally, all of the students in the program get to keep copies of the books we read together so they can develop their own personal libraries at home. We run the program in the hopes that we can help provide a safe and nurturing environment that allows the students to have exposure to positive academic and social experiences through reading.
