HIKE Reading Coach Virtual Orientation!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Phoenix Family

Volunteers are a critical component to the success of HIKE. Research shows that children thrive under the individual attention of caring adult. In HIKE, volunteers not only help with general programming and youth development activities but with more specialized activities as well. In particular, the reading lab relies on volunteer Reading coaches to act both as tutors as well as role models in order to reach the greatest number of children and have the greatest impact on the individual child

Reading Coaches meet one-on-one with students in Phoenix Family's HIKE After-School literacy program. Monday through Thursday between the hours of 4:30-6 PM, for one hour volunteers work with students grades K-8 on lesson plans designed just for them, focusing on their interests and reading level. Don't worry, there is a lot of fun involved too!

The orientation will cover everything you need to know before you start volunteering as a HIKE Reading Coach. We have several different locations and dates and times, so there's sure to be one near you! Orientations are consistent across locations, so you can attend an orientation at one location and volunteer regularly thereafter at another.

About Phoenix Family

Mission Statement

Phoenix Family empowers people living in low-income housing communities with the on-site support they need to gain stability and achieve self-sufficiency.


A stable, safe home holds enormous possibilities for a low-income family striving to chart a more secure and hopeful future. With an average household income of just $11,743, Phoenix Family’s residents are often just one crisis away from becoming homeless. And, like millions of low-income individuals across the United States, they need more than housing to build personal and financial assets and overcome barriers to success - they also require services where they live.

Volunteers are vital in helping Phoenix Family reach our mission of helping people and changing lives. Last year, we received support from more than 350 volunteers, but even this is not enough to meet all the needs in our community. Whether you are looking for a seasonal or regular opportunity as an individual or a group, Phoenix Family offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to help our community.

Phoenix Family’s Youth Development, Families First and Senior Empowerment Programs provide those critical on-site services that help residents learn skills and gain perspectives that keep dreams of stability and hope realities for the future.

Phoenix Family’s staff and programs rely on trust, rapport, choice and convenience to engage residents in services. All services delivered are culturally appropriate and based on the desired outcomes of residents, including increased disposable income, increased educational levels, improved health, and strengthened social networks.
