WorldRead Club Grows Literacy on Navajo Nation

Students at Navajo Pine High School in Navajo, New Mexico have established their own WorldRead club to help boost literacy on the Navajo Nation.

 The club is being overseen by Reader to Reader’s Navajo Outreach Coordinator, Ophelia Hu.

WorldRead clubs are Reader to Reader’s volunteer student organizations for both high school and college students. Participants read to children and give out hundreds of books donated by Reader to Reader. They also boost their own reading skills through a book discussion group, and work on other literacy projects that they design and implement.

For information on establishing a WorldRead club at your high school or college, please write to info@readertoreader.org.

Reader to Reader’s Navajo Outreach Coordinator is funded through the generous support of the Fordham Street Foundation, the Hiatt Family Foundation, and Jean and Lynn Miller.
