Become a Tribe Leader
Tribes are informal reading circles for pleasure and non-deterministic learning. They’re very similar to book clubs. Tribes are a great opportunity to bond with boys.  A Tribe Leader acts as a mentor and facilitator for the Tribe. Parents, teachers, librarians, booksellers, coaches, and other community outreach programs and services organize Tribes. Below are links to successful boys literacy programs.

Teachers and school librarians are encouraged to host structured Reading Tribes designed for boys who are reluctant readers. Click here to download an excellent guide for establishing a Reading Tribe (Adobe Reader required).
