Want to get involved in the larger community, learn about diversity and equity and realize the impact one can make through the development of relationships with youth? Join us in Read to L.E.A.D. (Learn.Engage.Ask.Do)!
Read to L.E.A.D. is a relationship-based interdisciplinary and experiential learning opportunity that engages and educates the campus community and the community in which it resides. Using literacy as a tool, this program provides high-impact learning and leadership opportunities for all members to become equity-minded practitioners, foster social change and embrace diversity and equity on campus and in our larger community. Mentors pick one location, must attend a mandatory training and commit to spending 12 weeks with their mentees. Transportation is provided to offsite locations for mentors who do not have cars. Mentors will spend one and a half hours each week getting to know their mentees through games, reading/dialogue and building life skills together through various activities.
