Eleven recipients from across the province will receive the 2011 Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship:
Donna Cardoza, Markham, is a member of York Region's Equity Council and the Alliance of Educators for Black Students in York Region. Four years ago, she created the Nubian Book Club for at-risk students to enhance and maintain their literacy skills throughout the summer.
The Nubian Book Club has returned for another year and this summer the literature chosen is another by author Hill Harper: ‘Letters to a Young Sister, Define Your Destiny’.
Facilitator and teacher, Josh Cardoza, explained that choosing the sibling book to last year’s Letters to a Young Man was the natural choice, “Really, it’s about staying with a concept that kids felt good with the first time around.”
High school students, younger children with their parents, teachers, principals, and even superintendent Cecil Roach of the York Region District School Board, gathered in the backyard of Nubian Book Club founder, Donna Cardoza’s home last Thursday (July 8), and they began – Chapter One, “Empowerment 3.0.”
Yes, it’s Nubian Summer Book Club time again!
Join us and engage in reading, learning, and discussing what Dr. James and Dwayne have to say through poetry and prose. Hear words of wisdom from great mentors and enjoy food, friendship, swimming, and networking.
No purchase of books or pre-reading required. Books will be provided at each Nubian Book Club session.
This message is for my wonderful and generous "Village".
I have never before in my life been as moved and inspired by individual generosity as I have been this past summer. This second year of Nubian Book Club brought even more passion, more openness, and more inspiration than it has in the past. I can only dream that next year's club will continue this trend of growth.
