Invest in a Child Through Reading

Volunteer weekly to read to a child in a low-performing local school or after-school program.

Many school districts, schools, and/or libraries offer such programs in areas where children are at risk for decreased literacy.

Investigate the availability of such programs in your area, and then make a commitment to spend time with a child weekly.

GOAL:

To commit to improving the lives of children, one child at a time, though volunteer service.
