Welcome to the YB&B readers club, where we encourage black and brown youth to discover great books and establish a sense of community.

YB&B captures the attention of young readers, ages 11-16, and engages them with culturally relevant quality literature. Youth part-take in meaningful discussions to build their confidence, social skills, and literacy skills, fun literacy games and activities, and engage in healthy peer interactions.

YB&B members meet every Thursday at 5:45pm.
Meetings are held in person.
