Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Reading to Kids has fall internship opportunities!

Help inspire kids with a love of reading while gaining experience in the nonprofit sector.  Our internship program gives you the opportunitiy to learn the ins and outs of running a small nonprofit while enjoying a relaxed and fun working environment.

Interns support the day-to-day operations of the office in addition to taking on individual, long-term projects. Projects include but are not limited to: community and school relations, event organizing, fundraising and grant writing, marketing, reading club operations and volunteer recruitment and coordination.
