    Reading For Life

    In This Segment

    The program, "Reading for Life," has been reaching out to young people through the Juvenile Justice Center (JJC) of St. Joseph County, IN, for over five years. Developed and overseen by Dr. Alesha Seroczynski at Notre Dame’s Institute for Educational Initiatives (IEI), Reading for Life was adopted as an alternative to community service and a way to reduce recidivism among adolescent offenders.

    More information can be found on their website.
