Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Reading is the cornerstone of education and a San Diego non-profit organization is helping low-income, at-risk children discover the power of books. 

In Thursday's Zevely Zone, Jeff went to Barrio Logan with Words Alive. 

According to Words Alive, one in five adults in San Diego are functionally illiterate. 

The non-profit organization said most at-risk teens never read a book from cover to cover.
