Born to Read seeks committed volunteers who are interested in reading with young children at community sites. Ambassadors talk, read, and sing with children and share information with parents about why reading with children right from the start is so important.  They also give each child a book to take home, a sticker that says "I'm Born to Read" and a bookmark for parents.

  • Complete 3-hour early literacy workshop and volunteer orientation
  • Commit at least 2 hours per month reading in the community 
  • Document hours of service and numbers reached
