What is Project LIT Community?

Project LIT Community — a national grassroots LITeracy movement that aims to get students excited about reading by highlighting diverse, high-interest, culturally relevant books and promoting a love of reading in our schools and communities. We work together to:

  • Empower students as READERS and LEADERS in their school and community.
  • Host monthly or quarterly Project LIT Book Clubs.
  • Flood our schools and communities with high-quality, culturally relevant books.
  • Champion & celebrate reading daily.
  • Inspire and support one another through sharing of lesson plans, resources, strategies, and book recommendations.
  • Create opportunities for students to connect with peers around the country.
  • Advocate for policies & practices that will help our students become lifelong leaders.



Once accepted, chapter leaders access our resources and checklists and connect with our community to develop a game plan for their school. From there, they empower their students to organize Project LIT Book Club events and engage in service & project-based learning that address literacy needs in their community. Through the process, our Project LIT educators & students become passionate readers and leaders who change the world.
