The UPSTARTERS Need To Read Community Project is the latest from the United Way of Greater Waterbury youth leadership initiative. UPSTARTERS gives local youth exposure to the role they can play in addressing community needs, and empowers them to be active in the thinking, volunteering and resource-raising that creates positive impact.
To highlight the vital role that reading plays in education, understanding and positive development – the UPSTARTERS Need To Read Community Project requests youth, adults, business leaders, community organizations and United Way Emerging Leaders group get involved in fun reading activities!
