(Virtually) volunteer to help a Detroit student become a stronger reader

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Reading Partners

Volunteer virtually to support the young readers of Detroit!

Today, 60 percent of Detroit youth under five live in poverty, and by third grade only 14 percent of these children are reading at grade level. Reading Partners and Brilliant Detroit are working together to harness the power of community to provide these young students with access to high-quality learning opportunities. Are you ready to help a student become a lifelong learner?

  • Give as little as one hour per week to provide critical literacy support to a Detroit student.
  • Volunteer from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the United States -- you will be connecting with your student virtually through our online Reading Partners Connects platform! A laptop or desktop computer and reliable wifi are required.
  • Volunteering takes place on Monday through Thursday from 5 pm to 7 pm. Volunteers can choose one or two days per week to volunteer!
  • Anyone 14+ can volunteer, and all volunteers 18+ must pass a background check.
  • No experience is required, as we provide volunteers with a structured curriculum, training, and ongoing support to help you and your student succeed.
