About: The Helps Education Fund connects research with practice and engages teachers, parents and volunteers to improve student learning. They assist educators with improving students’ reading fluency and bridging the gap between research and schools. Metropolitan Organization of Volunteers for Empowering Students (MOVES) was created to increase volunteers’ skills and a school’s capacity to deliver research-based interventions.
2016-17 DGIN funding helped support MOVES staff and provided program materials, equipment and website infrastructure. The funding also helped MOVES expand programming and serve more target schools in Wake County.
