As part of their community COVID-19 response to support distanced learning, the United Way of the U.S. Virgin Islands introduces the “In It to Win It” summer book club initiative for Virgin Islands students.

The program is designed to enhance literacy skills, bolster imagination and encourage creativity through reading. Reading and access to books are critical components of combating the summer learning slide under normal circumstances and are even more important in these days of early school closings, no summer camps and social distancing.
