Volunteers are always needed to continue our program. Volunteers read aloud to children one-on-one in childcare centers, Head Starts, shelters, and clinics. All volunteers who are 18 years of age or older must undergo a fingerprinted criminal background check. Students volunteers must be 16 years old to read on their own. Children ages 8-15 may volunteer if accompanied by an adult.

Volunteers are also needed for office work, committee work and various projects we have throughout the year.
