E.M. POWER E.D.
How do we continue to encourage literacy and education in children as they enter Kindergarten?
The ladies of POWER have sponsored the Kindergarten students at Longfellow Elementary. By assisting with weekly tutoring, sponsoring needed supplies, monthly ‘learning labs’ and ‘Feed the Family’ nights these children are getting a positive first experience with our community’s educational system and developing the skills needed to be engaged and excited about education. Along with our POWER member volunteers, we have also added volunteers from these local businesses: Alvetro Orthodontics, Amos Memorial Library, Choice One, Emerson Climate Technologies, Reuse Insurance Company, Shelby County AAA, State Farm Insurance and Wilson Health.

The Born Learning Project (BLT)
BORN Learning Trails (BLTs) are designed to help adults interact with children to boost language, literacy and physical activity. Since 2013 POWER has been instrumental in the construction of 3 Born Learning Trails in Shelby County. The original trail is in Sidney’s Tawawa Park, Baumgardner Basin. In early 2016, the Fort Loramie BLT opened next to their Library, and Anna, Ohio dedicated their BLT in October. It is located in the Anna Community Park on SR 119.
