National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature

Every Child a Reader is currently accepting proposal submissions from libraries, schools, bookstores and organizations interested in hosting an event with Jason Reynolds, the 7th National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Reynolds will travel to underserved rural or smaller communities across the country during his two-year term to have meaningful discussions with young people. Through his platform, GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story, he will connect with, listen to, and empower students in these communities to share their own stories and start their journey as storytellers.

Locations are encouraged to put together proposals that support and align with Jason’s platform and the mission of the program.
