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.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Read Ahead!

We are seeking mentors from our partner organizations to be trained over the summer and start in September as mentors for the 2019-2020 school year. If you are 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.

If you would like to become a mentor for the 2019-2020 school year, please complete the interest form below. Our team will be in touch about the next steps when our application opens this spring and training sessions start this summer.

If you have questions, check out our FAQ, Mentor Resources page or email us at
