Student Leadership Service Project

Bookshare

As your chapter begins planning fall activities, don’t forget about Student Leadership’s 2018-2019 Service Project—Bookshare: A Benetech Initiative. As members of Sigma Tau Delta, you don’t need to be reminded of how literacy can open doors, create opportunities, and inspire communities to be great. Sigma Tau Delta’s mission is displayed regularly in our commitment to scholarship and service on the chapter level. On a larger scale, Student Leadership works toward the same goal, promoting literacy to all, which is why we chose the Bookshare program at Benetech as the focus for this year’s service project.

Benetech is a corporation that has “a pure focus on developing software for social good.” They work in four areas: education, human rights, environment, and poverty. Student Leadership will focus on education and the accessibility Benetech brings to others in terms of literacy.

During the 2018-2019 academic year Student Leadership challenges all chapters to raise $150.00.

All money raised will be recorded by Sigma Tau Delta, listed by chapter, and presented to Benetech in a single payment. Please do not send money directly to Benetech.

As members of Sigma Tau Delta, we strive to expand our creativity and our knowledge. It is now time to give back and spark imagination in the next generation of readers, writers, and dreamers by providing them with the tools necessary to aid literacy.
