Is the disparity of literacy and wellness in youth a worry for you? If your answer is yes, then you are in the right place because it is a worry to us as well. That is why we created Amaya's Bookreads Inc. which is a youth empowerment literacy and wellness organizaiton committed to empowering, engaging, and ingraing the value of literacy and wellness for families in underserved areas. Our goal is to give every youth and familiy the value of literacy and wellness no matter what community they are from. In one our workshops I held up a tomatoe the first day of class and asked our students where does this tomatoe come from. Alot of them said the store, the supermarket, and even the refrigerator. After our 13 week workshop our students now know exactly where the tomatoes come from, how to grow them, sustain them and how to grow other vegetables to go along with them in order to make a healthy dish. Serenity said, "Ms. Sanchez I am a farmer." Our youth are benefiting from reading horticulture theme based books & making connections to real life, learning to grow in the city, sustain produce, and healthy. Our new intiative is to do an afterschool program called Read it, Grow it to teach students indoor gardening. This is a curriculum that should be in every school giving studets the benefit of learning to grow food indoors and reading for life time of success.
