Online Reading Volunteers

Our online reading volunteers program connects schools with corporate volunteers, helping thousands of young students develop their reading skills each year.

How it Works


We connect students who need practice with fundamental reading skills with virtual reading volunteers from our corporate partners. Each volunteer is paired with one student for the entire school year.


Once a week, volunteers call into the classroom at a time designated by the teacher, and work with the student for 30 minutes. Together they read stories and collaborate on writing projects.


Over time, this 1:1 corporate engagement initiative has demonstrated positive impact on student’s confidence, vocabulary, and knowledge of the world.

Chase Bank Reading Volunteer, Dan Oaks

Dan worked with a 1st grade student in Oakland and visited Oakland Unified Schools after seven months of virtual reading sessions. We caught up with the pair as they met in person for the first time.
