SJ Boys Read! is a non-profit organization based in southern New Jersey that encourages young boys to read. It is led by college students Kyle Thumar and Cameron Pendino, with the help of high school students Nikhil Thumar and Shailen Doshi. SJ Boys Read! holds many events throughout the year where boys can get together and discuss selected books, play games, win prizes, and have a good time. In addition, SJ Boys Read! has hosted noted authors, illustrators, and other male role models at their events who share a passion for reading.
SJ Boys Read! started in the summer of 2008 with the help of two of Kyle and Cameron’s favorite elementary school teachers. Since then, SJ Boys Read! has expanded, and now SJ Boys Read! offers even more resources to help boys become passionate about reading.
