The best gift a child can receive this holiday season is a book!

Children who read at grade level by the 4th grade, are four times more likely to stay in school than those who do not.

The Violence Reduction Program is a unique endeavor that pairs law enforcement officers, local volunteers and City Year Miami staff with local children to get them reading.

We examine the need for this partnership and the significant results it is achieving here.

Guest:   Wifredo Ferrer, U.S. Attorney for Southern District of Florida

                Keith Fletcher, Exec. Dir., & VP City Year Miami
