Principal Officer

Nina Packer

BIO

Nina Packer is a consummate youth nonprofit professional and a dynamic personality. She founded Readers Make Leaders in 2003 because in her daily interactions with urban students as a high school teacher, she found that they didn't read a lot beyond course requirements--if they did that. To encourage recreational reading she stocked the classroom bookshelves with books that students could check out and she started a school wide book club. After leaving the profession, she decided to create an organization that would encourage recreational reading habits among high school age youth in urban settings throughout the U.S.
