H.E.A.L.T.H for Youths 1 Week Reading Challenge 8/3-8/10

On 8/3 we did a fabulous workshop for the students in the NYPD Staten Island Summer Youth Police Academy. We asked the students “how many of you love to read.”

Sadly, only about 1/4th of the students raised their hands. The #1 reason they gave for not enjoying reading? “It’s boring.”

So we decided to do a 1 week reading challenging with the students! Each student in the program agreed to read one book by 8/10 and write a short report about the book! So we decided, why not expand the challenge. Interested in doing the challenge? Use the form below, pick a book to read and finish it by next Friday! It can be a book you’re already reading with your child, a sibling, or something totally new you’re reading on your own. Don’t have a book? Email Heather.butts@health4youths.org and we will get one to you as quickly as possible.

We will also select 3 lucky readers to receive a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble – so pick a book and happy reading!  https://goo.gl/forms/xXQ0QrgkazjjeDvy2
