What We Do
Beyond Basics is a literacy organization dedicated to intensive one-on-one reading intervention and holistic literacy enrichment programs for students and families in Metropolitan Detroit. Our proven tutoring methods unlock the miracle and power of reading and opens a whole new world to those who need it most. We developed this model by partnering with principals and schools in Detroit. Our mission is to work with children who are furthest behind and get them reading at grade level. We achieve this in an average of 6 weeks. Our holistic literacy programming also engages mentors, art, and writing to help students in vulnerable communities learn to read. This intervention has transformed thousands of lives.
