Applications for the Teen Reading Ambassador initiative is open through August 2020 for the Fall/Spring 2020/21.
This program positions local teens as reading ambassadors in their own high schools. WOW Teen Reading Ambassadors interact with published authors of young adult literature, receive books by that author and share their experience with their peers to promote reading in their school communities. The Teen Reading Ambassador initiative is administered by WOW in the University of Arizona College of Education. For more information, visit our ambassador page.
