This program, organized by the American Library Association, gives at-risk, troubled youth the opportunity to read, reflect, and share ideas on topics that resonate with them. Selected libraries will receive copies of three theme-related books to use in reading and discussion groups of 6 to 10 people; travel and lodging support to attend a national orientation workshop in June 2016; and a variety of programming support materials. Libraries of all types who are located within or working in partnership with an organization that serves at-risk youth are eligible to apply.
