Read with Me Wednesday at HCZ

This fall, we launched Read with Me Wednesday—a new weekly initiative inviting HCZ staff to read with the 240 students at our four Harlem Gems pre-kindergarten sites.

Reading aloud with children helps to deepen their vocabulary and foster their imagination, curiosity, and empathy. This initiative also gives all of us at HCZ a chance to pause and appreciate just why we do everything we do—for these incredible kids.
