Award-Winning Virtual Reading Program
Due to Covid-19, schools across Ghana were shuttered indefinitely. Our Alumni Coordinators, Caitlyn Lubas and Jordan Wolken, launched the Virtual Reading Program in late 2020 as a way for students to continue their studies outside of the classroom.
With other volunteers, they have moderated biweekly Zoom sessions during which students can practice their spoken English and reading comprehension skills. These sessions have encouraged the children to keep learning during these challenging times.
In October 2021, the program received the Innovation of the Year Award from the NYU Alumni Association.
