About Read to Lead – NCSU Women’s Center
Read to L.E.A.D. is a relationship-based interdisciplinary and experiential learning opportunity that engages and educates the campus community and the community in which it resides. Using literacy as a tool, this program provides high-impact learning and leadership opportunities for all members to become equity-minded practitioners, foster social change and embrace diversity and equity on campus and in our larger community. Mentors pick one location, must attend a mandatory training and commit to spending 12 weeks with their mentees. Transportation is provided to offsite locations for mentors who do not have cars. Mentors will spend one and a half hours each week getting to know their mentees through games, reading/dialogue and building life skills together through various activities.
