Mission Statement

World Change Starts with Educated Children.


The Austin chapter consists entirely of volunteers who fundraise to support Room to Read's programs and raise awareness of Room to Read in our local community. Please see our open volunteer positions on the right side of this screen! If none of these positions are a good fit for you, but you would still like to get involved, please email roomtoreadaustin@gmail.com. We will be having a volunteer orienation in June 2013 if you would like to learn more. Check our website or Facebook page for more details!

Room to Read is a global organization seeking to transform the lives of millions of children in the developing world by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Founded on the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children, Room to Read works in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations, and governments to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children and to ensure girls have the skills and support needed to complete their secondary education. Since 2000, Room to Read has impacted the lives of more than five million children in Asia and Africa and aims to reach 10 million children by 2015. Room to Read has 50+ chapters in cities across the world and depends on its chapter leaders and chapter members to help achieve its' annual fundraising goal and to represent Room to Read.
