Everybody Wins with An Open Book!
An Open Book is pleased to partner with Everybody Wins! DC (EWDC), a nonprofit promoting children’s literacy and a love of learning by pairing children with reading mentors.
Appreciating that “the art and craft of storytelling is an essential part of literacy,” EWDC also offered “StoryTime,” storytelling performances for students in preK4 through second grade at Title I elementary schools in Washington, DC.
Recognizing their organizations’ complementary missions, the executive directors at AOB and EWDC saw an opportunity to combine the two nonprofits’ skills and resources to offer high quality programming for DC elementary school students. EWDC is sponsoring an average of two AOB events per month for eight months of the 2017-18 school year for students in preK4 through 5th grade in AOB-eligible schools where EWDC had its StoryTime program. A dedicated EWDC staff person assists AOB at every EWDC-sponsored event.
