Become a Read Ahead Mentor

Develop a bond and have fun with your mentee through reading and conversation during one lunch period a week or every other week from September through June. Read Ahead matches you with a child age 5-12 at a nearby public school, and provides training and support. Your consistent presence and encouragement will give your mentee the confidence, motivation, and skills to succeed in school and in life.

We have concluded our fall mentor recruitment phase for the 2018-19 school year, but are seeking people currently affiliated with our partner organizations to become mentors for the 2019-20 school year or to join our waitlist and fill in if additional needs arise over the current year. If you’re not affiliated with a current Read Ahead partner, please check out our Page Turners program and/or contact us if your employer might like to become a corporate partner.
