Read Mommy, Read (schedule below)
This program provides parents the opportunity to spend quality time promoting literacy with their loved ones. In addition, it allows young minds the opportunity to develop strong literary skills while engaging with peers. Early afternoon programming includes parents reading to toddlers, while late evening offers more structured programming to school aged kids inclusive of: quiet reading, oral book reports, book making, storytelling, poetry reading, short story writing, and creative writing with explorations in hip-hop.

Story time includes invited guests to read stories to the kids. Oral book reports will occur after all kids have spent one hour in quiet reading. Book club occurs when a book is identified and three or more people decide to read that same literature. All participants contribute a short story towards the printing of one book in bookmaking. We have a section of poetry which is visited weekly and poems are selected and read by students to the other youth, following is a discussion about the poetry. Students are encouraged to submit their own poetry as well.  Creative Writing with explorations in Hip-Hop is encouraged in conjunction with poetry.
