Program Overview

Research shows that nearly a third of youth from under-served communities fail to earn a high-school diploma. That's why volunteers in our Adolescent Book Group Program work to engage teens in the power of reading through integrated book-club style discussions, writing sessions, and project-based learning that support students' ability to express themselves, broaden vocabulary and think critically, all while developing a positive attitude towards books. During the 2020-21 program year, volunteer facilitators brought reading alive for 619 teenagers facing extraordinary circumstances and helped grow student home libraries by gifting participants 1,400 books to keep.
