Vision Young Leaders' Academy is a nonprofit organization based in Oxnard, Ca. We are committed to making our community a better place by building leaders of the future. Part of how we accomplish our mission is by hosting a Vision Book Club each quarter where we select a Young Adult book to read as a group and discuss. We are in need of diverse books for all of our book club members.
Diverse books are important for students to feel a sense of identity and value. They are like mirrors allowing the students to see themselves represented in a story and help explore their identity. Diverse books are important to bring visibility to cultures different from their own, as well as create openings for discussions about what's happening in current events. Diverse books also build community unity and inclusivity to our group allowing members to unite despite any of their differences.
We would greatly appreciate your donation. It is tax deductible and helps many students in our community.
Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader!
