Read Like Me
Educating for Tomorrow
Read Like Me is a literacy and role model initiative providing internships to young Black males to help address the reading achievement gap in Black male students in grades 3-5. Hired mentors will work with local elementary schools to run book club and reading circles with high interest reading materials. They will also develop a YouTube channel to promote reading in this demographic. Read Like Me addresses not only the literacy gap, but also gives opportunities to promote education as a career field for Black, male student leaders.
