Athena Program Kicks Off 5th Year!

Day 1 of our annual Athena Interactive Literacy Program kicked off with Chef Bill Collins demonstrating the versatility of the egg.

The Athena Program works with teen mothers from Holyoke, MA, and combines personal literacy and family literacy with healthy eating and cooking.

This year marks the 5th year of Reader to Reader’s Athena Program, which is conducted in partnership with The Care Center.

Also on the agenda was poetry writing. Reader to Reader staff member Ophelia Hu led the group, who are preparing spoken-word poems that will be recorded at Northfire Studios.

Support for the Athena program is made possible by Florence Savings Bank, PeoplesBank, and the AEC Trust.
