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 4:00-5:30 pm.
Team Read Summer Tutoring
Help students maintain and grow their reading skills during our 6-week summer camp in June and July.
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.
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 Ian Cherutich 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.
