Wow! Shout of the Day definitely goes to our inspiring partner Reach, Inc.for being honored with the Innovations in Reading Prize from the National Book Foundation!
In addition to that prestigious award, they just earned a 3-year $300,000 grant from the Norman R. and Ruth Rales Foundation. Wow.
These outstanding honors not only change the trajectory of this organization, they change the trajectory of LIVES of teens who most need that inspiration and support. We are so proud to partner with Reach, and thrilled that our collaborative book projects help make the case that they are one of the most innovative programs in the country. Hurrah!
