The Literacy Coalition has launched a new youth reading initiative called ReaderCorps. Youth can earn prizes and recognition for reading and support literacy through donations of books or pledges in our read-a-thon.
The ReaderCorps mission is to provide meaningful service opportunities for children and teens that make them excited about reading while supporting literacy in Palm Beach County. We are encouraging youth to organize a book drive, read to younger children or the elderly and participate in our read-a-thon. Any child from kindergarten through twelfth grade – whether attending a traditional public school, charter school, private school or is home-schooled – can be a member of ReaderCorps. We are also looking for students to serve as the leader of the campaign at his or her school or group and be a ReaderCorps Ambassador.
ReaderCorps 2017 will conclude with a finale April 26 at a recognition ceremony at the Literacy Coalition’s Blume Literacy Center in Boynton Beach. We will honor the youth, schools and groups who have embraced the true spirit of the campaign and helped to make Palm Beach County a community that values literacy.
