TEAM 2 – Reading Intervention at the Youth Opportunity Center

The TEAM 2 project implemented a reading intervention program with at-risk youth at the Youth Opportunity Center (YOC), a residential treatment facility in Muncie. Students in this project studied psychological, environmental and cultural factors that contribute to reading difficulties, and developed skills in applying proven reading strategies. This project is tied to an education-focused research study related to youth in the juvenile court system at YOC. Working collaboratively with the YOC, students spent the semester making a real difference in the lives of young people. Through funding by the National Institute of Justice, this project started in summer 2016 and will continue until spring 2018.
