Mass Literacy Champion
This past December we were awarded the 2018 Mass Literacy Champion Award! We were one in eight in the state of Massachusettes recognized for our work related to Literacy.
We could not do this alone and attribute our success to the support of our fabulous site partners and volunteers. This includes our collaborations with Merrimack Valley Jewish Coalition for Literacy, Professional Story Teller -Nicoltte Nordin Heavey, Lawrence Public Library and Andover Bread Loaf of Phillips Acadamy. All of these partners play a key role in supporting our literacy efforts with our youth. It takes a Village and we thank them all for being a part of our Tribe!
