About

JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST ILLITERACY IN DETROIT SCHOOLS

Read to a Child Detroit is seeking volunteer readers for its Lunchtime Reading Program at SW Detroit Community School Tuesday, Wednesday's and/or Thursday's. Mentors attend one on one reading sessions with their student once per week from now until late May. The program is flexible and convenient for both the busy professional, student or retiree who want to give back to the community in a meaningful way as the program only requires 30 minutes of your time once per week. To allow for further flexibility, mentors also have the ability to partner with a colleague to support one student, alternating each week for a total of 12-15 sessions per person each school year. Our volunteer mentors are well supported by a dedicated school coordinator and receive background checks and training before being paired with students.
