Future Forward is a nonprofit focused on early childhood literacy with programs to help young readers. Some of their approaches include using one-on-one tutoring and family engagement to help young readers.

The organizations’ latest effort involves delivering all sorts of school supplies, door-to-door, in the Greater Milwaukee Area. According to TMJ4, Future Forward will hand-deliver books, academic worksheets, school supplies, and even snacks to about 100 families.

Tough Times

Global fears of the coronavirus pandemic have forced almost every learning institution to adopt digital learning solutions. However, some families do not have the resources to enable e-learning for their children.

The organization estimates that nearly half of the students it works with in the area do not have reliable access to WiFi and other digital tools necessary for online learning.

The assistance that Future Forward is providing will help these children make it through this strange time. Using pencil and paper is antiquated to some but it’s helping us now more than ever.
