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.
Born to Read is an all-volunteer effort with no paid staff. Our partners (link to page) provide staff for reaching parents with our message. And, our trained volunteers and outreach workers with other non-profit organizations are spreading the word at community sites.
We raise funds to purchase books – lots of books – and pay for printing, supplies, volunteer expenses, educational materials, as well as professional services for early literacy training, product design, website management, and photography.
Your tax-deductible donation will directly benefit children and parents and help expand our reach across the 5-county region.
