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!”
