Big Book




Young, Black & Lit is partnering with teachers across the country to provide support for their students during this unprecedented time. We are providing books to help students build their home libraries and WE NEED YOUR HELP!


​How Does It Work:

1. A teacher will identify a set of books from Young, Black & Lit's Book Bank to provide to each of their students;

2. Young, Black & Lit will create a fundraising page to raise money to provide the books at no cost to the students or their families;

3. Teachers will share the pagewith their personal networks. Spread the word. Raise money. Reach the goal!

4. Young, Black & Lit will mail books directly to each student once the fundraising goal has been met!
