Literacy for Life 5K: hosted by the Youth Life Learning Centers (

The Literacy for Life 5K is a fundraiser hosted by the Youth LIFE Learning Centers. Proceeds from the 5K will benefit Youth LIFE, allowing Youth LIFE to provide services to 90 students between 2018 - 2019 school year, and an 8-­week summer enrichment camp.

The Literacy for Life 5K will help Youth LIFE raise awareness about our mission and alignment with community stakeholders to close the achievement gap, and assure all 3rd graders are reading on grade level by the year 2025. The Youth LIFE Learning Centers is located on the corner of Tennessee & 44th Ave., where we’ve served families and youth since January 2001.

At the onset and conclusion of the 5k, information about Youth LIFE will be provided. Participants of the 5k will have the *option to sign up for volunteer opportunities, site visits, pick up information about services provided at the center, and make donations.

​***Strollers are more than welcomed at our event. We ask that those participants start toward the back of the race to ensure everyone's safety. ***
