100 MEN READING Recap 2013...

This was another successful time for the 100 MEN READING. As GREAT men we must give back to the youth. They are our future....

The 100 Men Reading Program is the brainchild of 10 year old Imani Henry, a Reading Assist Institute alumnus who wanted to promote reading and literacy development to young children in Delaware.  Imani co-authored a Macy’s Reading is Fundamental (RIF) grant with the vision of having 100 men go into classrooms to read to children in preschool through 3rd grade.  According to Imani, “I know how hard it was for me to learn how to read when I was 5 years old.  So I had an idea to develop the 100 Men reading program; men all over Delaware can help make a huge difference.  Someday I would like to invite President Obama to read on 100 Men Reading Day!”
