Read-In On The Green

January 20, 2016

It was my pleasure to take part in LEAP’s Read-In last week at the New Haven Green. My group and I had a great time reading The Time Machine by H.G. Wells.

LEAP has been serving the New Haven community since 1992. According to its website, LEAP strives to “develop the strengths and talents of young leaders who implement year-round, community and school-based programming designed to achieve positive academic and social outcomes for children living in high poverty urban neighborhoods

LEAP hosts an annual read-in where local volunteers read aloud to small groups on the New Haven Green. This year’s volunteers included Rep. Lemar, Rep. Juan Candelaria, and other community leaders. To learn more about LEAP, visit
