I AM PARTICIPATING IN Generosity Brooklyn
IN SUPPORT OF Behind the Book
$408 RAISED
$1,000 GOAL
Hello friends! As most of you know, I am a member of the Young Executive Board for Behind the Book and am requesting your help to support this wonderful organization.

Behind the Book’s mission is to inspire New York City public school students to love reading by bringing accomplished authors and their books into classrooms and creating rich,innovative literacy programs. Founded in 2003, we have since served over 12,800 students and have distributed more than 17,500 books.Our programs take place directly in public school classrooms in low-income neighborhoods. We serve students of all ages, from Pre-K to the 12th grade. Through this work, students have shown an increase in reading engagement, quality of written work and and increase in literacy. The students also love guest speakers and seem to thoroughly enjoy the volunteers in the classroom.

I need your help to continue the wonderful work being done in New York City's public schools through Behind the Book. We have a massive waiting list of schools interested in this program and your contribution will help us to bring authors and books to these schools. Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and donate to this wonderful cause.

Thank you!

Juliet
