Mission Statement

The mission of Readers 2 Leaders is to develop and grow the reading skills of children in West Dallas ages 3-10 so that they succeed in school, graduate and leave school prepared to live productive lives.

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 children in West Dallas ages 3-10 so that they succeed in school, graduate and leave school prepared to live productive lives. R2L is currently serving 245 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 have an In-School program that takes place during the school day at 5 DISD elementary schools in West Dallas and an After-School Program at our literacy center, Booktown.

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!

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.
