Celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience! Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® campaign mobilizes millions of children and adults to celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience. Join us on October 25, 2018, as we read together in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between to put children first by shining a spotlight on the importance of high-quality early education.
Locally, the Children’s Services Council of Broward County and Broward County Public Schools are coordinating Broward Reads for the Record. On October 25 between 8:00 AM and 12 noon, volunteers are needed at area child care centers and elementary schools to read "Maybe Something Beautiful" by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell to 40,000 students in 500 VPK centers, 225 schools and 1,500 classrooms throughout Broward County!
When you sign up for this project, you will be asked to:
- select a school that is convenient to your home or office,
- type your city/geographic area and zip code
- type your best contact phone number
HandsOn Broward staff will e-mail you the school's contact person who you will meet that morning. Registration will close on Tuesday, October 23rd, at 5:00PM.
