Free Literacy Program that Cultivates Youth Voice and Leadership

Read to Lead is a fun, engaging, and relevant way to blast through traditional reading barriers and promote workplace readiness and skill building. By playing games, students increase reading achievement, find motivation, and see - often for the first time - a real connection between learning, career aspirations, and their futures. Read to Lead is geared for students in 5th - 9th grades and provides free community action projects, coaching, and implementation support for an enriching after school and summer program experience. The Read to Lead staff is committed to turn-key implementation and support to build the capacity of directors and youth facilitators. Learn more about the program.

National Afterschool Matters Fellowship Application Cycle is Open

The National Afterschool Matters Fellowship (NASM) is a professional development and leadership training program unique in its national reach and incorporation of technology for ongoing collaboration. It is hosted by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) at the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College with generous funding from the Robert Bowne Foundation. The NASM Fellowship is for mid-career OST, education, or youth development professionals who demonstrate a commitment to the field. NASM fellows are selected by application, and over a two-year process engage in reflection, inquiry and writing activities that position them to inform and contribute to the quality of OST programs, practice, and the broader field. The deadline to apply is May 31, 2019 11:59 pm ET.
