The Reading Warriors program employs high school students as reading mentors for 100 elementary school children, teaching them that reading isn’t just a skill to learn, but a powerful way of interacting with the world. Reading Warriors aim to fundamentally change children’s literacy engagement – both in school and at home – by selecting interesting, age-appropriate books to read aloud and by asking thoughtful questions about vocabulary and comprehension.
