Our Mission

DEEP mobilizes community partners around a research-guided theory of change designed to ensure that children attending schools in a cluster of southeastern San Diego neighborhoods enter kindergarten prepared for success and complete third grade reading proficiently.

Now more than ever, our students need the help of our data-backed approach to literacy.

In the wake of the pandemic, DEEP's work is essential as more children are at risk for not reading by the end of 3rd grade, increasing the likelihood that they will not graduate high school.  

We are working to keep this present reality from becoming the future for our students.

Who We Are

  1. We are community-based.
  2. We are research guided.
  3. We are collaborative.
  4. We are data-driven.
  5. We are crafting the future of our students and the face of America's workforce.

DEEP's literacy approach is research backed


DEEP currently serves 4 partner schools, attended by over 1,200 students in grades PK-3. With each passing year, DEEP intensifies its focus on a subset of schools. We like to say, we are an inch wide and a mile “DEEP.” Our goal is to provide comprehensive supports that simultaneously address the multiple roots of the challenges facing students and families in the Diamond Community of southeastern San Diego.

PLEASE GIVE TODAY!  Join us to invest in our students and the future of our community.
