Athletes as Readers and Leaders Program at CSM

The College of San Mateo Athletes as Readers and Leaders program is a cooperative effort between the library, the athletic department, the child development center, and college faculty to promote the value of literacy, nutrition, and exercise to young children.

Participating athletes read picture books to pre-school students and use their positive influence as role models to engage children in discussions about the value of reading, nutrition, exercise, and education. For more information on this program see video produced by CSM student Alex King.
