During the 2019-2020 school year
Give Every Child A Chance (GECAC) is a leader in providing after school mentor/programs throughout San Joaquin County. GECAC after school programs offer one-on-one mentor/tutoring to children struggling in school. Over 3,000 students annually receive after school programs and mentor/tutoring through our various programs. Literacy programs offered through GECAC focus on family reading time, library materials and support services, reading readiness activities, basic concepts about books, creating a print rich environment, book selection tips, what to expect from the child when reading with him/her, how to share a book with a family member, and other literacy-enhancing materials. Students enjoy the program and have an opportunity to receive support while working on better comprehension skills. On another level, focusing on comprehension and literacy, GECAC plays a key role in the counties annual Great Valley Book Fair, where thousands of people gather to meet and mingle with their favorite authors, discover new ones, or pick up a book they have been excited to read. These experiences all add to the growth and eventual success of those students participating in our programs.
