Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to help kids in grades 1 through 4 improve their basic reading skills by reading one-on-one with a trusted, caring adult from the community.
Lead to Read KC connects trusted, caring adult volunteers (called Reading Mentors) from every walk of life with kids in grades 1 through 4. Once a week, for 30 minutes, Reading Mentors and kids explore the world by reading books provided by the children’s teachers, in the safety and security of an elementary school classroom.
That’s it. There’s no prep and no take-home work. Just read with a child for 30 minutes, once a week.
Together, we can achieve Lead to Read KC’s heartfelt goal: To inspire kids to love to read and - and to let them know that someone cares.
