WolveReaders in Action
Wolvereaders is a student-run organization created in MCSP, with the mission to help elementary school students with reading and writing. The group travels to different elementary schools across the Ann Arbor area to engage young children with literacy skills, and to excite them about higher education through a mentorship/pen pal program. Wolvereaders are go to Estabrook Elementary School in Ypsilanti bi-weekly to help the two second grade classrooms they work with to read and write their pen pal letters. At their last event, they even had a special guest: Paws, the Detroit Tigers mascot. From performing little skits to reading stories to the children, Wolvereaders engage with their local community to work towards higher literacy and college graduation rates. The Wolvereaders represent MCSP values and serve as ambassadors of the University of Michigan when interacting with local communities, being champions for social justice and equality.
