Volunteer Opportunity: Books to Youth in Prison

This is not about beans. But it is very cool. So I’m sharing. If so inspired, please do the same. The more people who knows about these kinds of initiatives, the better.

NIA DISPATCHES

In the next few weeks, we plan to launch a pilot program similar to Chicago Books to Women in Prison.

Chicago Books to Youth in Prison will be a volunteer-led project that collects and distributes books to children in three Illinois Youth Prisons. The project will also invite donors to write letters to incarcerated youth.

Details of this project are still to be determined. For now, we are seeking potential volunteers who might want to become leadership team members to develop and execute the project.

Come to our initial meeting on February 3 at 6 pm at Civil Lab 114 N. Aberdeen for a preliminary discussion, to learn more and to contribute your ideas.

Please RSVP to confirm attendance by Saturday January 31st to niapoetry@gmail.com.
