Our volunteers are the secret to our success
READY TO BECOME AN R2L VOLUNTEER?
Our volunteers come from a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds, which exposes our students to a diverse community. Volunteers do not only help children improve their reading skills, but also increase their confidence and develop a love of learning and reading. You can become a tutor, mentor, and role model to a child in need by volunteering with Readers 2 Leaders.
Reading Buddies volunteer for as little as 30 minutes per week.
Team Read In-School Tutoring
Read one-on-one with a student once a week at Team Read school sites. This time provides the students with the individual reading support they need to develop into independent readers. You may sign up for 1 or multiple 30 minute sessions
Team Read After-School Tutoring
Assist elementary students with homework completion and work one-on-one with a student to help them improve their reading skills during our literacy focused sessions, which occur from 3:30-5:30 pm
You do not need prior teaching or tutoring experience to become a volunteer. Readers 2 Leaders provides all necessary training, as well as on-site support from an R2L staff member. We offer flexible scheduling to help you fit volunteering into your busy schedule. Sign up today to be a Reading Buddy!
We are grateful for the partnership of several groups from corporations, faith communities, and organizations. We would love for your group of 5-15 volunteers to come work with our students in Team Read After-School! We can also collaborate with your group to create additional opportunities. Please email Audrey White to find out more about group volunteering at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We periodically have opportunities to volunteer with R2L on weekends and evenings, such as processing in-kind donations or making improvements at Booktown. Please email email@example.com to be added to our volunteer email list.
