AKRON, OH — Project Ujima will be holding their summer program, “Make Reading a Passport to Your Dreams”, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12.30 PM to 2.30 PM from June 22 through July 29.

This program aims to gain students reading and writing skills from the program and shape young new authors. The age group eligible for this program is the 6th and 7th-grade students. The program is limited to 15 participants.

The students then will be attending Buchtel CLC next Fall. They will read “A Long Way Down” by Jason Reynolds, who employed compelling methods to write the book.

The program will take place at Buchtel CLC, which is located at 1040 Copley Rd. The student will meet the program committee at the cafeteria at 12.30 PM for lunch before moving to the assigned room.

There will be a $100 gift for each student who completes the whole six-week program. Prospective participants are directed to contact Taba Aleem at 330-529-5672 or email at taleem@projectujima.inc.org.

Project Ujima is an organization that focuses on teaching and facilitates Discussion Circle processes of diverse citizens to gather and discuss the latest issues and build trust with each member.

The project is named after the third principle of Kwanzaa, which means “Collective Work and Responsibility: To build and maintain our community together and to make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together”.
