Book-to-Action

One Book, One College is proud to announce our participation in the Book-to-Action program. This program was developed by the California State Library and the California Center for the Book. Book-to-Action builds on the traditional book club concept, but in addition to providing an opportunity to collectively read and discuss a book, Book-to-Action enables readers to put their new-found knowledge into action by engaging in a community service project related to the book's topic.

This year, we will be working with the Committee for Culturally-Responsive Teaching & Learning on understanding with more empathy how poverty affects students' lives. CCRTL will be hosting a poverty simulation for faculty. In addition, students will be asked to volunteer with South County Outreach, a local organization dedicated to preventing hunger and homelessness in our region. More details will come soon.

Please reach out to Alicia Zach at azach@saddleback.edu if you are interested in joining these efforts.
