The Reading Connection is looking for volunteers for our Read-Aloud program, reading to kids at a local homeless shelter once a month.
Volunteers are needed at Greentree Shelter in Bethesda on Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm (plus 10 minutes on the front end and 5 on the back to set-up/clean-up). You'll be with a group of other volunteers who will work together to plan and conduct one Read-Aloud each month. The volunteer commitment is one evening a month for a year.
Volunteers must be 16 years old to participate.
