Jackson Joins Syracuse University Literacy Corps
Teikesha Jackson of Far Rockaway, a sophomore accounting major at Syracuse University, is a member of the Literacy Corps.
The Syracuse University Literacy Corps (SULC) is a program developed in response to former President Clinton's "America Reads Challenge" that encouraged community members to get involved with mentoring and tutoring young children to improve literacy. Clinton specifically called upon students at colleges and universities to help with the challenge.
The SULC, Syracuse University's answer to this charge, is a communitybased learning experience that mobilizes SU students to mentor and tutor students at schools and community based organizations in the Syracuse area.
