Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and City Year Partnership

Volunteers from Hougton Mifflin Harcourt organize book donations for students

In April, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced a partnership with City Year to launch HMH Classroom Corps, a unique multi-tiered program that provides employees with opportunities to connect with teachers and students at schools across the United States. (source: HMH Press Release) City Year Orlando is excited to be among the City Year sites that have the opportunity to work with HMH on this newly formed partnership.   

Orlando based HMH employees participated in a learning forum event in June at Catalina Elementary School, where City Year Orlando AmeriCorps members serve students each year. At this event, volunteers guided elementary students participating in an Orange County Public Schools summer learning program through different literacy activities such as story time and performing short plays from HMH’s Reader’s Theater collection. Each classroom was able choose from the books read during this event to keep in their classroom.
