Thanks to an important partnership with New York City’s Department of Youth and Community Development, BookUp was able to launch its first summer program.

Through support from DYCD, BookUp launched 10 new sites throughout the city, helping hundreds of students develop an appreciation for reading where it really counts: outside the classroom. We were also able to bring in new instructors, including Mitchell S. Jackson, Zetta Elliott, Daniel Jose Older, and Charlie Vazquez.
