From the Mouths of Participants: CLTL in Action

Though Changing Lives Through Literature is an organization founded on the power of reading and discussion, we’d like to take a break from the great discussions we’ve been having around here and offer you a little less talk and a lot more action.

The videos below offer a great introduction to the faces and founding principles that propel CLTL programs. These individuals–offenders, instructors, judges, probation officers, and community volunteers–keep CLTL alive throughout the country. Will you be the next to join them?

  1. Hi Allan: That video was originally made at one of our Henderson House meetings the year we were putting together the CLTL website for the NEH. I am glad you like the class sessions. I think they capture some of the energy and shape of the CLTL discussions.
