Occidental College's Community Literacy Center is moving to the Academic Commons!
In the true spirit of community engagement, each participant grows from the other. Here both Oxy students and local children enrich each other's lives in a warm and welcoming environment.
What's the focus? Creative exploration in language arts. Enrichment at all levels, whether the child is gifted, an English-language learner, or perhaps faces a temporary roadblock in finding a love of reading, writing and creative expression, or all of the above. We integrate arts, technology and critical literacy in an engaging and meaningful way.
Who are the kids? From the community local charter, public and private schools including children of staff and faculty. We get kindergarteners through fifth graders, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Sixth through eighth graders on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
How do Oxy students get involved? Enroll in EDUC 140/CTSJ 110 or EDUC 141/ CTSJ 111 for 2 units, credit/no credit.
Want to enroll a child? Contact the director.
