The primary goal of Literature for All of Us is to turn young people into independent readers. By promoting the idea that reading can be fun, enjoyable and beneficial regardless of a student’s academic abilities or standing, we encourage teens to view reading as a lifelong pleasure and route to self-discovery. There are many benefits to encountering positive experiences of reading, particularly for those who have not had successful education experiences.
Our program makes a difference in the academic performance and confidence of students as they become avid readers. We successfully engage them in the learning process and make reading and writing fun, enjoyable activities. Our weekly book discussions and poetry writing exercises encourage young people to freely explore the world of words, and in doing so, they overcome barriers to learning.
