Mission Statement

Reach Out & Read makes literacy promotion a standard part of pediatric primary care, so that children grow up with books and a love of reading. Reach Out & Read trains doctors and nurses to advise parents about the importance of reading aloud and to give books to children at pediatric check-ups from six-months to five years of age, with special focus on children growing up in poverty. By building on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers, Reach Out and Read helps families and communities encourage early literacy skills so children enter school prepared for success in reading.

Description

We need enthusiastic, book-loving volunteers to share stories with children for one hour or more per week in the waiting rooms of our clinics.
