About

ABOUT US

At Pajama Program, we believe that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the right to a loving good night. Since we can't be with every child at bedtime, Pajama Program Reading Centers are how we reach more children -- giving us additional opportunities to show unconditional love and help children feel appreciated, supported, and cared for.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Our Reading Parties begin with circle time introductions and continue with reading in pairs (1 child to 1 adult) or small groups. During the Reading Party, the children receive a snack, a new pair of pajamas and a new storybook of their choice. The children range in ages from 4-12 years old. Reading Parties last about an hour and run throughout the entire year.
