One hour. One student. That's all it takes to make a difference! Reading Coaches are needed for students grades K-8 who struggle with reading.

Reading Coaches meet one-on-one with students in Phoenix Family’s HIKE After-School literacy program. Monday through Thursday between the hours of 4:30-6:30, volunteers work with students grades K-8 on lesson plans designed just for them, focusing on their interests and reading level. Don't worry, there is a lot of fun involved too!

We can’t wait to welcome you into our Reading Labs!

You can help make the dreams of Kansas City kids come true by helping to give them the key to education. Reading Coaches are needed now in low-income housing communities in Kansas City. It only takes 1 hour a week to help teach a child how to read.
