Reflections on a Summer at CLiF
Front Porch Forum doesn’t just help you find your lost dog or that bunk bed you desperately need for your kids. In my case, it found me a summer internship.
Our storytelling presentations and book giveaways at summer programs across Vermont and New Hampshire keep reading a part of children’s lives during school vacation. Apply now for Summer 2023!
CLiF works closely with organizations such as Hunger Free Vermont, New Hampshire Department of Education, and the New Hampshire Bureau of Nutrition Programs and Services to identify nutrition programs, summer camps, and other organizations that serve kids at risk of experiencing summer slide.
CLiF presenters tell stories, read aloud from books, and share their love of words, reading, and writing. Every child who participates chooses two books to keep from a wide selection of brand-new children’s books.
We Let Children Choose Their Books!
CLiF finds that when children choose their own books, they’re more excited about reading and more likely to read for pleasure. A study by the International Literacy Association found 80% of students say the books they enjoy the most are the ones they choose themselves.
Deadline: May 31, 2023
Please know there may be changes in the format, timing, and components as we work through COVID-19 and the outcomes. CLiF is looking for ways to serve you and our target audience in these unprecedented circumstances – please send any ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An organization, program, or facility must meet these requirements to apply for CLiF’s Summer Readers program:
“We had a few comments from children that the books they received from CLiF were the first books they had ever owned.”
