Meet the NHR Fellows

Every summer New Haven Reads has amazing fellows from different universities and colleges join our team. This year we are lucky to have three fellows that joined us from Harvard University, University of New Haven, and YALE College.  Our fellows help with tutoring, summer clubs, and special projects.
