The Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, is engaged in multiple charitable efforts. Not only does the Rite strive to shed more light on Freemasonry and make good men better, but it also strives to enrich the world around us.
THE CHILDREN’S DYSLEXIA CENTER
The 32nd Degree Learning Centers for Children provide tutoring for children with dyslexia. Dyslexia, the most common reading disability, threatens to deprive 15% of our schoolchildren of a normal childhood and family life. The Children’s Dyslexia Center, sponsored and supported by the Scottish Rite, provides the highest quality remedial reading services for children with dyslexia free of charge. Additionally, they train highly skilled and dedicated tutors. More information can be found in the Philanthropy section of the Supreme Council website, as well as on the website about The Learning Centers.
Scottish Rite Masons are proud to support Children's Dyslexia Centers in 15 counties throughout central Pennsylvania.
