Help Increase Literacy in West Dallas - Become a Reading Buddy!

Readers 2 Leaders (R2L) is a local non-profit organization serving the West Dallas area with the mission to develop and grow the reading skills of underserved Dallas children (ages 3-12) so that they succeed in school and graduate prepared to live productive lives. R2L is currently serving almost 800 students with our In-School, After-School, and Summer Programs.

Reading Buddies (volunteers) are a key part of our programs and provide the essential one-on-one reading assistance to a student once a week (or more as the volunteer is able). As a Reading Buddy, you will help a child develop their comprehension reading skills through an engaging and interactive read aloud. Above all, you will be a positive role model that in encouraging and makes reading fun!

Summer volunteers are required to volunteer at least 5 sessions during Summer Camp (June 21st - July 27th) and attend a 2-hour training the week before. There are two session opportunities to choose from: Morning 9:45-11:35am or Afternoon 1:45-3:35pm
