Tonight I am so excited to be co-hosting the Books & Cocktails event for the Young Friends of Learning Leaders. Learning Leaders is an organization very dear to my heart and in which I have been involved for the past 4+ years. Since 1956, the organization has helped NYC public school students by providing tutoring and other school-based support as well as by equipping parents with the skills they need to help their children succeed. Today Learning Leaders trains up to 10,000 volunteers who reach over 230,000 public school students in all five boroughs.
The Young Friends Group was formed just over 4 years ago and has been doing a lot of fun things. Below are some images from our previous events.

Hope to see you tonight!
