Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our June 11th "People & Places Around the World" reading clubs are about 60% full, so please sign up today!

Please also join our June 11th Facebook event to help spread the word.

We would love to have more Site Coordinators, New Volunteer Trainers, Returning Volunteer Trainers, or GLCs.

These smaller summer reading clubs are the best times to step into any of these important roles - all training will be pleasantly provided! Please email us at info@readingtokids.org if you are interested.



Are you a recent grad interested in working full-time at a nonprofit? Perhaps you are looking for a career change?

Reading to Kids is hiring a Literacy Coordinator through AmeriCorps for a 12 month position starting in August! The position is posted on our website, where you can read it by clicking on the Literacy Coordinator button below Latest News. Be sure to apply as soon as possible.
