Reading So Lit Summer
Inspiring Black and Brown boys to read during the summer and beyond!
Reading So Lit Summer 2023 July 10th – 27th
Reading So Lit Summer is a virtual 3-week reading identity exploration program that helps Black and Brown boys (ages 6-8) explore, discover, and express their reading preferences. This innovative program uses relatable youth instructors, interactive virtual lessons, and hands-on reading activities to increase boys’ vocabularies and to inspire them to read for fun.
We hire and train male high school students of color (ages 16-18) to serve as reading role models. These youth instructors lead fun 1-hour virtual reading explorations twice a week with a cohort of 10 boys. Certified teachers observe each program session and provide coaching to youth instructors throughout the program.
