Photo Gallery: Youth United Way and UW staff bring help to Books & BBQ literacy & publishing expo

Saturday’s “Books & BBQ” literacy and publishing expo at the Agricenter International brought children, students, and people interested in reading and writing together for a great day of fun and education.

Teens in our Youth United Way leadership program and United Way staff worked behind the scenes to bring literacy education and early learning opportunities to the visitors, as well as information about college readiness and academic success..

We wish to thank Books from Birth,  Girl Scouts Heart of the South, Knowledge Quest Inc., the Urban Child Institute and other groups for providing great information and activity which helped make the event a great success.

This activity is part of United Way Worldwide’s Day of Action activities which work to improve people’s lives during the month of June. United Ways across Tennessee are working to enhance early learning and literacy as part of Day of Action this year.

Below, check out our photo gallery of all the action and excitement. (Photos courtesy of Clint Anderson, Letitia Robertson and “Books & BBQ” volunteers.)
