"City Year has a very clear and consistent mission of commitment to interrupting behavior that contributes to greatly increasing the chances of a student dropping out of school. I believe in the approach and effort put forth by the City Year Organization as demonstrated through the direct contact Corps members have with students facing personal and educational challenges. Education and the support of City Year Corps members can be the key to unlocking access to a brighter and enhanced quality of life for many students. I gladly support CY Reads as a fundraising effort to replace the Annual Starry Starry Night fundraising event. Perhaps the most crucial benefit of CY Reads is the range of stories and literature the CY Reads videos will make accessible for Corps members to use with the students they support. CY Reads is an ingenious idea that germinated during the learning environment presented by COVID. I hope many will participate and contribute to this City Year effort."- Lesa Scott

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. 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. This virtual library of read-aloud videos for grades 3 to 6 will be used in extended learning time to enhance student connection to learning. The 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.
