Reading Rally Guest

Reading Rally is a morning “pep rally” that celebrates literacy, mindfulness, friendship, creativity, and empowerment. Read Aloud Guests are invited to participate in Reading Really by reading a short picture book to the scholars and sharing about themselves and their role in the community. Read Aloud Guests can bring a favorite book from home or have one provided for them.

Field Trip Chaperones

On most Fridays we take the scholars off-site between for fun and engaging field trips! We are always grateful to have extra chaperones at our field trips, as it allows our scholars more freedom to explore in smaller groups! Time commitment is a Friday during the summer.

Summer Eighth Grade Scholar Advisor

We are looking for volunteers to join us this summer to work with our eighth grade scholars once a week! These volunteers will come to one of our program sites once a week to hold a book club or literacy-based discussion meetings with these scholars. We are looking for volunteers who enjoy working with middle schoolers and have a love of reading! Time commitment is once a week for 3 consecutive weeks.
