Reading Time With Shelter Buddies

Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.

Reading Time With Shelter Buddies

This team worked with the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin and local school districts to aid in expanding their reading program into a traveling curriculum through a partnership with both the Janesville and Beloit/Beloit Turner School Districts. Children will be reading to puppies and kittens.
