America Reads

Projects / Non-Profit

A federally funded non-profit, America Reads is an organization that connects college students with public school elementary students to foster literacy development. I served as the Head Director of the Columbia University Chapter for two years, managing over 75 volunteers and reaching hundreds of under-served students. I developed and presented literacy workshops for our volunteers, recruited literacy experts to train our staff, and worked with five public schools and programs in Harlem.
