Promoting Literacy Through Mentoring
The Little Omega Libraries Mentoring Program works with community partners that service youth and families. The program promotes critical thinking in four stages:
CLEO CLICKS CRITICAL THINKING MODULES
CLEO CLICKS provides a series of video modules that encourage group discussion and focus on critical thinking. The community partner reviews the modules with youth in small group settings on a weekly basis. Fraternity members review the modules during book discussions. The modules are available at wwww.CLEOinc.org.
DONATION OF CLASSIC BOOKS
Members of the Chapter donate books that they studied as college students, sharing the legacy of information and experiences. A customized Omega Bookcase is built and provided by Brother Lamar Thompson. The books are stored in the case and available to anyone in the partnering facility.
MONTHLY VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB
A small group of young men receive individual copies of books that are read and discussed in monthly virtual sessions.
MEET THE AUTHORS
Local authors discuss their books with youth on a quarterly basis.
MENTORING FOR COUNSELORS
Educators that specialize in urban youth development participate in motivational sessions with counselors.
David C. Miller is the author of the life sills curriculum Dare to be King: What if the Prince Lives. His conversation with counselors focuses on tips and strategies counselors can use to teach life skills.
