Super Stars Literacy provides extended learning time intervention services to under-performing K-2nd grade students, helping them develop the literacy and social skills that are the foundation for future learning.

Originally developed as a project of the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, the Super Stars Literacy program was launched at a single Oakland school in 2002 and became an independent non-profit in 2008. Today, we provide targeted literacy intervention to approximately 700 K-2nd graders at eight high-need schools in Oakland, Hayward, and Newark.
