This project will be documented in a future Kids Reading To Kids book to be released in 2009.

The kids took the action to name this project "VOICE" as in giving them a voice. The program included kids in kindergarten through grade 6 all working in an integrated, nurturing environment. Two teachers and several volunteers supervise this kid-centric project. Progress to date has been exceptional and the transformation of the kids reinforces the value of the Kids Reading to Kids concepts. The typical day (two hour and 45 minutes) includes:
