Kids Who Read Succeed! Become a Volunteer Reader!

As a volunteer reader you would be assigned to read weekly to a preschool classroom in a low-income community in the St. Louis metro area or adjacent county. Your assignment would be for the same day/time each week for approximately 30 minutes. You remain with your assigned class for the entirety of the school year in order to develop long-lasting, meaningful bonds with the students. Virtual and in-person opportunities available!

YOU can contribute to reducing the education gap in St. Louis by becoming one of our trained Volunteer Readers!

**Please note that this opportunity is currently virtual and that our office is located in Olivette, but the centers we serve are located throughout the St. Louis metro area**

Mission Statement

Ready Readers expands literacy for young children in low-income communities through high-quality books, strong relationships, and literacy related experiences.

Description

Ready Readers is an early literacy program that inspires preschool-age children, ages 5 and under, to develop a love of reading. Ready Readers places volunteer Readers in early childhood classroom settings located in low-income communities. These volunteers read high-quality children’s literature to the same children each week in order to develop strong, meaningful bonds with the children in their class. In addition, Ready Readers gives each child 7-8 brand new books annually to take home and enjoy again and again.

Ready Readers is preparing our low-income, preschool children to become readers. Because, kids who read succeed in school, work and life.
