Calling All Volunteers! Everybody Wins DC Launches Reading Program at Walker-Jones Education Campus
Thursday November 14, 2019
In mid-October, the MVT CID joined Everybody Wins DC for a kickoff event at nearby Walker-Jones Education Campus. Led by Executive Director Jordi Hutchinson (second from left in photo), Everybody Wins is a non-profit that brings free shared reading programs to 11 DC public schools. Their signature program, “Power Lunch,” connects volunteers from the community to serve as mentors to elementary school students and read together once a week during the students’ lunch/recess period. This approach helps students build not just literacy skills but also critical social-emotional skills. If you or anyone that you know would like to become a mentor or donate children’s books, please send an email or apply on their website.
