Beth Kander (AmeriCorps '06) is working on an exciting project called "Yeah, Write Whatever!" (YWW) that will positively impact kids' reading and writing skills.  Her new nonprofit, Imagination Education, Inc., is partnering with Eyevox and the Mississippi Board of Education to make this happen. It's a great idea with the right partners . . . and now, the YWW team has a really exciting opportunity. This alumni-created project is competing for funding from American Express through their Members Project initiative - AND YOU CAN HELP THEM WIN!
