Kids need early reading champions and books in their lives to be ready for school success. An alarming number of children – about 67 percent nationwide and more than 80 percent of those living in low-income families – are not proficient readers by the end of third grade. This single fact can dramatically decrease the odds of school success and limit future options in life.
Working with our partners, we have gathered many vetted opportunities for you to volunteer and make a positive difference in the lives of children. Take a look below to find the one that is right for you.
