Family to Family Videos about Heading Back to School

Bryttani’s Story: “We really wanted to hone in on reading comprehension during the summer to prepare them for the next grade.”

In the video above, Ohio parent Bryttani shares about a program she and her son developed for him and his friends to get them ready for the next school year, called Black Boys Read. They focused on having fun while reading and developing reading comprehension skills to prepare for the coming school year.


How has Bryttani worked with her son and his friends to prepare for the coming year? Watch and listen.


Share Bryttani’s Story with others to inspire them to support learning in summertime for their children and community. How could you support learning and reading in your family and beyond? Are you inspired to start a program of your own?
