Share your love for books with a child. When kids become better readers, they learn to love to books too. You can spend one hour a week reading and playing games with a child while helping them build reading skills.

Our volunteer Reading Coaches work one-on-one with children who are struggling to learn to read, helping them to build their confidence and to catch up with their reading. The reading sessions are relaxed and fun. By working together, you can help give a child the vital skills they need to read, grow, and succeed.
We preapre the lesson plan and activties. You just come build confidence, encourage, and have fun!

Our Reading Labs take place within the low-income housing communities we serve. Reading Coach shifts run between 4:30pm-6:30pm Mondays through Thursdays. Can’t make it for the full two hours? No worries - whether you can come for an hour or two, your help is greatly needed and appreciated!

Become a HIKE Reading Coach today. Email April at volunteer@phoenixfamily.org .
