Join Us on May 13th for our From Readers to Leaders Poetry Café Fundraiser!

Join us on May 13th from 1:30pm – 4:00pm at the Berkeley Yacht Club for a poetry competition featuring local students and their Experience Corps Bay Area literacy mentors. Enjoy original poetry and cheering on young students, delicious food and wine, while taking in panoramic views of the Bay. Your support helps children read at grade level, ensuring they have better outcomes in school and life.

You can support students by participating in our raffle and silent auction, which features local merchants, artisans and adventure companies. All ticket, raffle and auction sales are donated to the Experience Corps Bay Area literacy program. This is a benefit to raise critical funds that will sustain our work addressing the education achievement gap in the Bay Area and transforming children’s lives throughout California!
