Getting to know you

The Joy Network engages youth through literacy by forging connections of communication, service, leadership, and lifelong learning with their peers, their families, and the elderly.


I especially enjoyed serving on “Letters to Grandma.” Hearing the stories and getting to know the senior citizens was an amazing time.
