  • The Betsy Writers Room at Williams Park – an artist in residence initiative in Liberty City in cooperation with South Florida Cares Mentoring Movement and the Wege Foundation
  • The Shelfie Project – in partnership with Warehouse 4726,  Little Sages Books and Book Tribe to seed classroom libraries for new, first-year teachers and teachers who have shifted to a new grade.
