Do you love reading and think it is important for all children to develop reading skills? Become a Virtual Reading Mentor and read one-on-one with a student in K-2nd grader! (Video about the Virtual StoryTent program: https://youtu.be/tsFtl-orpl4)

Reading Mentors will facilitate weekly one-on-one video calls with their assigned reader on our Virtual Story Tent platform. During these meetings, Reading Mentors will be asked to read with the child, as well as distribute Book Bucks for each book the child has read. The earned Book Bucks can then be used by the reader to purchase prizes on our online Prize Portal. These prizes will be delivered to the readers free of charge!

Grateful,
Bethany Moberly (bethany@travelingstories.org)

Mission Statement

Traveling Stories empowers kids to outsmart poverty by helping them fall in love with reading by the 4th grade.

Description

Traveling Stories is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides free reading support so that low-income families have the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty. We were established in 2010 by Emily Moberly, and exist to transform reluctant readers into confident ones. We specialize in making reading fun and believe that strong literacy skills are the most empowering gift we can give someone. Our StoryTent programs improve reading levels while also teaching families basic financial literacy skills. We inspire a love for reading while also strengthening children’s critical thinking skills and self-confidence.
