Muncie Reads is a program developed by Ball State Criminal Justice and Criminology Capstone students.  We have partnered with members of the Whitely community, Muncie Police Department, and Ball State Police Department for this program to engage in reading activities with Muncie‚Äôs youth.  Students joined officers and community partners at Longfellow Elementary School and Motivate Our Minds to interact with our youth while cultivating a love for reading.  It is our belief that the ability to read is a protective factor against juvenile delinquency and the school-to-prison pipeline.
