Volunteer Sign Up Sample (Lanvale)

About volunteering

Thank you for your interest in making a difference in the life of a child. More than simply reading with a child, you will help your student gain key foundational skills to become a stronger reader. Throughout the process of volunteering, Reading Partners will provide you with training opportunities to become the best tutor you can be; a highly effective, easy-to-use curriculum; and on-site support.

Minimum requirements to volunteer

  • You must be 14-years or older
  • Commit to as little as one hour a week (reading centers are open Mon-Thurs at local schools)
  • Attend an in-person tutor orientation
  • Pass a background check

Bay Area reading centers

Reading Partners meets students where they are—at their reading levels and at their schools. Locate a reading center that is convenient for you and mark that location when you complete your volunteer sign up form.
