Have you heard of the program “Real Men Read?” The goal is to get male role models from the community into the classroom. It encourages men to be actively involved in education by coming into classrooms to read to kids.

Action for a Better Community is hosting a “Real Men Read” event Wednesday with special guests Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard, Family Court Judge Roy King and Rochester Fire Chief Sam Mitrano.

Volunteers can register to read at any of the city's five Head Start centers.
