Hoping to Start a Book Club with High School Students

I’m hoping to work with New York Cares, a non-profit volunteer organization, to lead a small book club with high school students. Ideally, I would pick the first book and then the students would work together to choose each book after that. This is something I tried getting off the ground during the previous school year but was unsuccessful in finding the right community partner.

Last year, I was not strategic about when I started my search for a school/community partner. I waited until after the school year began, but at that point, schools and community organizations have already finalized their programming for the year–rookie mistake on my part. I’ve been doing my out reach sense the end of July, so I’m feeling optimistic.
