THBA is proud to support and participate once again in this year's John Germany Young Readers “Read to Dream” Initiative. We need THBA members to read to school age children on select Wednesday afternoons, beginning on January 23, 2019. The Read to Dream initiative is a program created to raise the lowest reading levels of children in Hillsborough County by providing engaging reading activities and books for children within some of our highest at-risk or under-served communities.
THBA has been assigned to West Tampa Elementary, located at 2700 W. Cherry Street, in Tampa, Florida 33607 on Wednesday afternoons, from 3:30 p.m.– 4 or 4:30pm, January to March to read to small groups as part of the Read to Dream program. THBA is committed to send one (1) reader for each session.
Please help make a huge impact with youth in our community by signing up for one (or more) of the dates below. Please click on the link below to sign up – we need you!
