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 October through May. 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!
