Readers 2 Leaders (R2L) is a local non-profit organization serving the West Dallas area with the mission to develop and grow the reading skills of underserved Dallas children ages 3-12 so that they succeed in school and graduate prepared to live productive lives. R2L is currently serving over 450 students with our Team Read Program. Team Read is a reading intervention program for students that need additional reading support to reach grade level. We provide In-School, After-School, and Summer Programs.
Reading Buddies (volunteers) are a key part of our programs and provide the essential one-on-one reading assistance to a student once a week. As a Reading Buddy you will help a child develop their reading skills through phonics practice, reading leveled texts, and reading high-quality literature to them. Above all, you will be a positive role model that encourages them and makes reading fun!
