Real Men Read Launches at R-BB Schools!

Volunteer mentors will visit Richland Bean Blossom Schools' kindergarten classrooms the next two years to inspire a love of reading.

The Real Men Read program brings local "MENtors" into classrooms to read to students once a month for five months during the school year. Kindergarteners receive a book during each visit to build their own home libraries and share with their parents. The MENtors will reach an estimated 240 children each year.

Global Youth Service Day Makes Local Impact!

What does Global Youth Service Day mean to our community? Rebuilding bikes, installing walking paths, mentoring young students, preparing community gardens, painting murals, planting flowers, assembling racks, and removing invasive plants are just a smattering of the projects taken on by local youth April 11th during the third annual Global Youth Service Day (GYSD). Youth from more than 100 nations participated in GYSD, making it the largest service event in the world..

Real Men Read a Success!

Spencer Owen Community Schools and United Way of Monroe County wrapped up the first year of Real Men Read in early February with great success! Real Men Read MENtors have been visiting the eight kindergarten classrooms once a month, boxes of books in tow, to share their own love of reading.
