Olsen-Fielding Early Adaptors
The day that Curt Olsen came to our campus and saw kids sitting on the floor learning to read was all it took. Playmakers had just researched a cloud based reading program that required software and chrome books but did not have the financial resources to launch the beta test. Our goal was to improve kids reading grade levels (in a volunteer program) during the summer. LOFTY GOAL!!
Curt Olsen committed the funding to kick off the summer reading program that yielded the data that proved kids can and will learn to read over the summer. With that data, Playmakers has secured a grant from the City of Rancho Cordova funding 3 more schools for 12 months. This means 100+ at risk kids reading and involved in sports and exercise.
This reading lab (along with Curt) was showcased to Jim McGrann (Global CEO of Vision Service Plan) and Jim saw the vision and results of Playmakers and corporate involvement. Curt Olsen (and the team at Olsen-Felding) jump started Playmakers after-school program.
We are proud to partner with Curt and Olsen-Fielding as they are assisting us in creating “uncommon youth.”
