The Growing Griots Literacy Learning Program, (GGLLP), started under the direction of Mr. S. Bunjo Butler, Master Storyteller and Manager of the Walbrook Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library with mentors from the Griots’ Circle. Currently Middle and High School students of the GGLLP participate in a 25 week program held at the Orleans Library from October through May. Students are taught skills in oral presentation, writing and research and perform in programs at various locations. At the end of successful completion of the programs students receive a certificate and are eligible to receive seventy-five (75) Learning Service Hours for graduation from various GGLLP Sponsors. Some students qualify for Summer employment with Enoch Pratt.
