Unit Overview 

Learners practice philanthropy by reading to younger children at least once or over a semester. Through teaming with younger children, they become more knowledgeable about reading and writing strategies and help young children learn to read and learn about kindness and generosity.

Service Experience 
Learners pair with younger children from an elementary school by reading a book to them and discussing it. They make connections between the story and the lives of the children.
