The Superior AmeriCorps program trains AmeriCorps members to serve prekindergarten through third grade rural students at risk of reading failure. Practices are based on a large body of evidence that shows students' literacy skills improve by increasing the frequency of read aloud experiences. The program also increases access to books at home by providing free books to participating children.
