Words Alive Page Turners

Are you a passionate reader? Do you enjoy young adult and children’s literature? Are you looking for your next great read? Join the Words Alive Page Turners!

Words Alive connects children, young adults, and families from underserved communities in San Diego to the power of reading. We pride ourselves on selecting the most contemporary, diverse, relevant, and engaging texts we can get our hands on for our programs. When our students identify with the books they read, they come to understand the curiosity and joy that reading can bring to their lives. As one student put it, "I wasn’t curious before, now I can read a book nonstop. Sometimes, the teacher tells us to stop at a certain point and I can’t, I have to keep going!"

We receive dozens of book recommendations from our volunteers, teachers, and community partners for titles they think would be a strong fit for our programs. That’s where passionate readers, like you, come in! By reading and reviewing titles from our recommendation list, you help us determine which books should be added to our program curriculum and taught in classrooms across San Diego county. And the best part? You can get started today from the comfort of your favorite reading spot!

How You Will Make A Difference:

"It makes me very happy to know that I can use my love of reading to help others. Reading these books will be a pleasure. If it can also help the work of Words Alive, that’s a double delight!" - Words Alive Page Turner
