Do you love to read? Do you want to change the life of a child? If so, Phoenix Family's volunteer HIKE Reading Coach could be the perfect opportunity for you! Our volunteer Reading Coaches work one-on-one with children who are struggling to learn to read, helping them to build their confidence and be successful in school. The reading sessions are relaxed and fun and by working together, you can help give a child the vital skills they need to read, grow, and succeed.

Our Reading Labs take place within the low-income housing communities we serve. We are so excited to be launching our new HIKE Reading Lab at Olive Park in the historic Northeast neighborhood of Kansas City.

Reading Labs will be Tuesday and Thursday and volunteers are needed anytime between 4:15pm and 6:30pm. Our volunteer schedule is flexible, many of our volunteers come once a week for one hour, some only come once a month. We can work with your schedule!
