Reading makes me smile!

Read with an elementary student once a week. You donate your lunch hour - no evenings or weekends! Apply online, complete a short online training session, and get paired with a student. Not sure you can make a weekly commitment? Sign up with a partner to share the volunteer experience, or become a "Flexible Reading Mentor" and attend a couple sessions each month.

Lead to Read KC is dedicated to improving the basic literacy skills of children in our urban core. Launched in 2011, w e connect nearly 1,100 elementary students with adult reading mentors in more than 50 urban classrooms across the metropolitan area each week. Learn more at
