Description: Readers 2 Leaders is a unique partnership between La Salle Middle School, a predominantly African-American school in North City, St. Gabriel the Archangel School, a predominantly white school in south city, and Saint Louis University. The three schools have come together in a program aimed at promoting literacy, an understanding of African-American history and the values of friendship, courage, self-control and justice. Readers 2 Leaders offers La Salle 8th grade students the opportunity to serve as leaders to St. Gabriel's 3rd graders, breaking down barriers as they read together and learn about historic African-American figures and the virtues those figures exemplify.
