About Boston’s Program

Read to a Child’s Read Aloud Mentoring Program in Greater Boston launched in 2002. The program currently serves over 800 at-risk children through nearly 1,100 volunteer reading mentors who participate each week at a local school. The Read Aloud Mentoring Program is offered at 16 public elementary schools in Greater Boston. Our volunteers come from our many corporate partners. Please note that the number of individual volunteer opportunities is limited at some of our schools.


NOTE 2021: Our programs are currently functioning virtually, and we are giving priority to returning volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for the first time, and would like to hear from us once we’re ready for new volunteers, please complete this form!

If you are a company or organization that would like to partner with us, please contact us at kristen.baxter@readtoachild.org.
