The 24th National African American Read-In

Hello All!

We have the opportunity for individuals to volunteer  on February 4th, 2013 for various elementary schools here in SF.Each volunteer will read a story aloud to children in participating schools. This event is intended to not only celebrate contributions of African Americans to literature but to inspire a love for reading in our youth.

In celebration of Black History Month, hundreds of volunteers will read aloud a book by an African American author and/or illustrator in elementary school classrooms across San Francisco. Exact times for each school will vary, but the 2 hour event will begin with  a breakfast gathering where you will learn tips on how to be an engaging storyteller. Breakfast will be followed by a 30-minutes classroom reading.

Volunteers will be matched with a class and provided a list of suggested, grade appropriate books. You can borrow a book from your local library or purchase your book. Purchased books can be donated to the school.

You can sign up at THE DEADLINE IS JANUARY 25th!

This event is a little different being that it is not a group project but more individually based. It is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the children in our community and I am sure it will be exciting and a blast. Please let me know if you have any questions.

      Go to the info page of the app. There is an arrow across from where it says "Hi All" press that and it will expose the hidden message. Hope this helps :-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
