Literacy NJ Student Magazine

We are excited to share our 2024 student magazine, Visions of a Perfect World.

“Education and training is the best gift you could give to a person
and volunteering in that aspect of helping your community,
helping the people around you to be well, is a very beautiful
action....As a beneficiary of a volunteer program, I hope to give in
the future the same thing that these wonderful people do for me
today.” Miguel Borelli, p. 74

This fall, our tutors taught lessons on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s
legacy. In response, our students wrote about the importance of
their sense of community, the charities they would like to start,
and their hopes and dreams for our future. Many students, like Miguel, wrote about their volunteer tutors when asked to reflect on the importance of service. We hope you will enjoy reading their pieces.

Thank you to AmeriCorps and the New Jersey Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission for supporting our vision and helping us to create a more equitable society through service.
