Want to make a difference?

Do you love to read? Do you like working with children? If you answered yes to both, join this innovative literacy program in an effort to instill and nurture a similar love in underserved pre-K to 12th grade public schoolers. Lead small group discussions; assist with writing, revising, and/or illustrating; and look on as students meet and learn from authors of the books they study. No experience or training is necessary, and location and scheduling are fairly flexible. Volunteers must be able to use e-mail.

Guess what?! There are even more great opportunities for volunteers 55 and older in all 5 boroughs!

RSVP works with over 250 other partner organizations as well. If this opportunity is not for you, we can help you find another that is. Attend one of our Learn and Link events or schedule a placement interview today!

**Please note: all RSVP volunteer opportunities are for individuals 55 and older; also, most assignments are with our partners located across the City**
