About

You can make a difference in the life of a child in just 1-2 hours a week. We connect passionate volunteers with elementary-aged students to build academic achievement and confidence.

Based on your availability, you will be matched with a Brick Elementary (K-3rd) teacher to volunteer during their Reading Block in the classroom. Volunteers must commit to volunteering one day a week for the semester, have reliable transportation, and (if 18 and older) complete a background check.

Volunteers will read and write with students one-on-one and in small groups. You will help struggling students make positive connections and memories with learning to read and write, gain the literacy skills they need to succeed as adults, and students will enjoy spending time with a meaningful role model.

All incoming volunteers must apply and go through an online training.
