Energy ExpressEnergy Express is an award-winning, 6-week, summer reading and nutrition program for children living in West Virginia’s rural and low-income communities.

With Energy Express, more than 3,000 children statewide gain or maintain reading levels during summer months through creative, colorful and captivating uses of art, drama and vocabulary. Our program also provides children with two nutritious meals each day during the program, helping to ensure our youths are fed each day even after the school year comes to an end. 

With the help of volunteers and mentors, students enjoy a daily read aloud to further enhance comprehension and fluency.

If you’re a parent looking to sign up your child for Energy Express, contact your local WVU Extension Service office. Energy Express is offered in various counties at select locations.
