Literacy Initiative

The Literacy Initiative is a new ministry of Manchester UMC that supports Peabody Elementary School in the City of St. Louis. We are looking for volunteers to help fourth grade students read and enhance their literacy skills.

This literacy initiative is one of many “Pathways Out of Poverty” efforts by United Methodists in the state of Missouri.
