What is CY Reads?

CY Reads is an initiative to meaningfully engage students during the pandemic when they are really struggling with disengagement. City Year New Hampshire will bring together enriching content through selected books, diverse readers and exciting presentations, and multi-lingual recordings to help promote student engagement. 

Viewing and engaging with read-aloud videos will be facilitated by City Year AmeriCorps members who already have existing relationships and have been supporting student engagement and learning since the beginning of the school year. The CY Reads experience creates a space where students can connect and find belonging alongside their peers, hear and read stories representative of their backgrounds, and grow in literacy skills. 

How can I get involved?

1. Sponsor CY Reads – Your company can sponsor your very own reader - an employee representative or your own celebrity. Sponsorships are available from $1,000 to $10,000 and each level provides various unique benefits. 

2. Become a CY Guest Reader – Sign up to be a reader (or nominate someone awesome) and reach out to your network to support your read-aloud experience. Suggested minimum fundraising goal of $1,000 (community member), $500 (alumni/young professional), $250 (student).

3. Donate to CY Reads  – Support our readers and City Year's work to bring these inspiring role models and stories to our students.
