Description

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 almost 800 students in our reading intervention programs 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 comprehension reading skills through an engaging and interactive read aloud. Above all, you will be a positive role model that encourages them and makes reading fun!

R2L makes it easy to volunteer and the volunteer experience is positive and rewarding because as a volunteer you have the ability to make a direct, meaningful impact on the life of a student. The R2L volunteer leaders are organized and professional and as a volunteer I fee like I am in good hands with them and they are maximizing my time and the time of the students. It is a win-win all the way around.
