The Road to Me: Literacy through Autobiography is a youth-centered project series that will help participants create their very own autobiography. Kids will be taken step by step through a process of self-discovery and expression through writing and illustration. Instruction and coaching will include genealogy, art & design, reading, and biographical writing. Youth enrolled will finish the program with their very own autobiographies!


“We are thrilled to be the recipient of this grant, which we plan to use to help kids connect with their world by helping them cultivate a love for reading and storytelling. Autobiography can be such a powerful genre, and we hope to use it to create young readers who have a better understanding of the world we live in.”
