Volunteer Opportunity description

Volunteer to Read with a Kid.

Change their life and yours.

By becoming a reading partner and volunteering as little as one hour a week, you can help a child strengthen their reading skills, build confidence, and discover a passion for reading. We'll provide ongoing support and a structured curriculum to help you become an effective tutor.

Literacy Unlocks Opportunity. Over the past decade, volunteer reading partners like you have helped students become confident readers by using the Reading Partners curriculum. Our volunteers make a huge impact in the lives of their students. By sharing their passion and knowledge, tutors become mentors, friends, and more to their students.

Have fun. Change a child's life. Becoming a reading partner is a fun, powerful way to help a student succeed in reading and life. No prior experience necessary to make a difference!
