Make a lasting connection
Read to a Child® offers a program designed to make volunteering easy: the Read Aloud Mentoring Program. One day a week, it brings adult volunteers into elementary schools for read-aloud sessions. Just one read aloud session a week is all it takes for a child to become a stronger, more enthusiastic reader. To establish consistency but allow schedule flexibility, volunteers can partner with a coworker to read to their student on alternate weeks.
Read to a Child supports volunteers by providing a diverse collection of recommended, age-appropriate books to choose from. Part of the reading experience is choosing a book together, and we do all we can to make finding a favorite story to share and discuss fun and easy.
