About

Since 1999, Goodwill's BookWorks program has been getting books into the hands of kids from disadvantaged homes. Last year BookSmart was created to help elementary children who would benefit from individualized attention.

Volunteer BookSmart literacy coaches meet one-on-one with a K-5 student to provide reading support and encouragement at an elementary school with Title 1 or D/F status.

Volunteers are matched with a reading location convenient to their home or work, and subsequently coordinate a schedule directly with the center staff. Volunteers must be approved by the school, and attend orientation with BookWorks. Training and all materials will be supplied. Volunteers must provide their own transportation.
