Junior Optimist International has a program that is designed to help Junior Optimist International Members get other kids
to pick up books and start reading! Through the Junior Optimist Reading Program, Junior Optimist Members
can help younger kids, students their own age and children they might never
even meet, plus readers of all ages who are young at heart!
Junior Optimist International has outlined two Junior Optimist Reading projects that Junior Optimist International Clubs can choose
to conduct, or Clubs can develop their own ways to promote reading to other students.
Children look up to older students and trust them to know what is fun, interesting
and cool! If Junior Optimist International Members show how fun reading can be, they will pass the
Junior Optimist Reading Program along to other kids.

Many students get so wrapped up in reading for school that they forget to
take time to read just because they enjoy it. Junior Optimist International Clubs can designate a
month to promote reading for fun to the students in their schools.
