VOLUNTEER with Smart Beginnings’ Reading Hour program
Through your service, you will help change a child’s academic path by encouraging a love for reading and being a positive mentor.
Reading Hour is a program in which adult volunteers are paired, one-to-one, with children in local childcare centers. These volunteers read with the same child every week for thirty minutes to generate enthusiasm for books, and increase the child's potential for success in school and in life.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out the volunteer application (docx), (pdf), and return it. You will then be given information needed to complete the background check and matched with a participating center.
