D.A.R.T. Program Through… The Gifted Learning Project. 





 Penetrate the Future & Provide Hope through Our Scholarship Program! 

Our D.A.R.T. Program's Target

  1 in 7 students in Kansas City ’s metro area elementary school systems are failing behind in read and never read better than 4th grade level.

 Thirty thousand adults in  Kansas City ’s metro area can’t read and the number is growing with each graduating high school class!

98 percent of students drop out of school, due to their frustration of inadequate reading speed or comprehension.

75 percent of the inmates in our penal systems have a learning disability.

Who Our D.A.R.T. Program Helps

Children, such as the following story about Sam, benefit immensely from our D.A.R.T. Program. Sam was seven years old and in the 1st-grade. He didn't know his sounds, during Christmas 2003. Then he began "tracking and using three blocks," and by the summer of 2004, he knew his sounds. That's when life began to get better for Sam!

His mom is a chaplain for a hospice. Sam’s parents do children's ministry and music. They adopted Sam and have three other children, as well. His mother's income is through their church; otherwise, she's home with the children. Sam’s dad was out of work for several months the previous year, but our scholarship program allowed Sam to receive free D.A.R.T. Program education.

Sam was schooled each week, Monday through Thursday, for one-half hour each day. The cost of a daily session is $15, which is low compared to national fees, but Sam’s family still could not afford this cost, due to their circumstances.

Without our D.A.R.T. Program, Sam would have missed learning how to read and write, and he would have missed out on life, in general.

However, thanks to D.A.R.T., within a couple of months, Sam's life changed for the better--and changed his life!

    Adults, such as the following story about Sherri, also benefit greatly from our D.A.R.T. Program. Sherri was looking to improve her life, go after her dreams and overcome her dyslexia by learning how to fully read and write. She grew by leaps and bounds each week, during the summer, thanks to the support of D.A.R.T.
