Opera Modesto’s Story into Song Literacy Initiative is a community collaboration to get more of our Stanislaus County community reading—and reading well.
Why here? Why now? And why support this effort?
- Stanislaus County continues to lag behind the state average in literacy achievement.
- The person who does not read, or read well, will suffer economically throughout life.
- Higher literacy rates are positively related to improved quality of life for all sectors of the community and economy.
