Ways to help

Host a Book Drive

Hold a book drive at your school, your church, or even your birthday party. Your support and involvement helps us improve the lives of teens with low literacy. We'll help you plan the details and arrange a time to pick up the books after your event.

Teen Literacy Events

Get trained as one of our official book experts and help ensure that every teen who talks to us takes home the perfect books at one of our literacy events. Once you are trained as a book expert, you can sign up to come to ANY of our literacy events to volunteer!! This is a great experience for small groups of teens like academic enrichment programs, book clubs, and honor societies!
