My Students

My students from El Paso, Texas come from a culturally diverse background. They are compassionate young adults who would like to become more involved in helping their community. The librarians from AHS will be hosting a bimonthly Project Lit Book Club starting this school year. Through reading and discussion of Project Lit selected books, we hope to empower students as readers and leaders in their school and community. We will also flood our schools and communities with high-quality, culturally relevant books. We feel that this book club will provide a necessary outlet for our students.

My Project

These books are essential in order to host bimonthly book discussions on issues that are important to our community. Many of our students cannot afford to purchase their own books for them to mark and make their own for our discussions. We want to empower our students through knowledge.

Diverse books offer a mirror and a window for young adults.

It is important for them to see their self worth through the characters of books and they help them build empathy towards individuals from different backgrounds than their own. They provide a safe space for our youth to learn about current issues. With the support of the non-profit Project Lit Community, we will provide our students the opportunity to connect with other chapters across the country.
