We are excited to be partnering with Lambda Theta Nu Sorority, Inc. and the Latino Caucus at Columbia University: School of Social Work for their First Annual “Stepping on Illiteracy” Benefit Show. Stepping on Illiteracy will raise awareness on the alarming statistics of youth illiteracy and raise funds for youth programming & scholarships. This event features performances that include step routines, spoken word, interactive skits, and other art expressions that relate to the theme of “the importance of literacy among youth, the promotion of higher education and always excelling in your studies.”
