Volunteers are the lifeblood of
Reading to Kids.
Whether they are engaged in organizational duties as
Reading to Kids Taskforce
committee members, in operational duties as members of a school's
Site Operations Staff on the day of the reading clubs, or as readers and mentors
to the hundreds of participating elementary school children, volunteers
work together month after month to help provide children with a brighter future
by encouraging them to become better readers.
Volunteer support from companies, school groups, and other
organizations is particularly essential to the success of the program. The
Friends & Supporters page
of the website contains further information on currently participating groups,
and it also contains information on how new groups can get involved.
One of the goals of
Reading to Kids is to provide an enriching and rewarding
volunteering opportunity to upstanding community members who may have just a small
amount of time to give, but who sincerely wish to give to the community and touch the
lives of others. The monthly reading clubs do not require a major commitment--volunteers
can choose to volunteer at a reading club whenever their schedules permit.
Volunteers may participate in the reading clubs by
filling out a mandatory online application and signing up for a
reading club via an online RSVP form. Click

Volunteers who have read at two or more reading clubs and who want to get more
involved in the planning, administration, and/or execution of some aspect
of the organization should join the Reading to Kids
