Mission Statement

Empowering children to achieve their dreams.


We are looking for volunteers to read with kids at our StoryTents, located throughout San Diego County. Kids earn Book Bucks for reading with volunteers, which they can redeem for prizes! We need volunteers for Imperial Beach, National City, El Cajon, Santee, and City Heights. Each shift lasts 2-3 hours and each program runs weekly. We ask volunteers to commit a minimum of 2 hours per month. Small stipend available for StoryTent Captains, who run the StoryTents each week.

Everybody I've met with Traveling Stories - from the director to the interns to the volunteers to the kids we read with - having been fun, giving, flexible, and receptive. I love the idea behind what this group does, and can't get over how effective their approach is. On a personal level, the best part has been how welcome I've been each time I've volunteered. Everybody makes me smile and feel good. How awesome is that?
