Wise Readers to Leaders Volunteer Form

Thank you for you interest in volunteering with Wise Readers to Leaders! 

We are dedicated to providing a completely free summer literacy and enrichment program for students from underfunded elementary schools. Not only are we able to provide free summer camp for these students, but we are also able to help students maintain or improve their reading level, foster a love of learning, and provide nutritious meals!

Our program could not exist without the help and dedication of our volunteers. Thank you so much for being so generous with your time.

Below you will find a list of our various volunteer opportunities. Please indicate which you would be interested in as well as your availability and we will reach out to you to schedule a time for you to visit one of our sites!

Read Aloud Guest

Reading Rally is a morning “pep rally” that celebrates literacy, mindfulness, friendship, creativity, and empowerment. Read Aloud Guests are invited to participate in Reading Really by reading a short picture book to the scholars and sharing about themselves and their role in the community. Read Aloud Guests can bring a favorite book from home or have one provided for them.

Time commitment – 9:00 – 9:30 AM on a weekday during our summer program.

Read Aloud Guests must be 18 years of age or older.

Field Trip Chaperone

On most Fridays we take the scholars off-site between for fun and engaging field trips! We are always grateful to have extra chaperones at our field trips, as it allows our scholars more freedom to explore in smaller groups!

Time commitment – One Friday during our summer program. Typically committing for either a full day from 8:30 am to 3 pm or an afternoon from 12:00 pm to 3 pm.

Must be 18 years of age or older.

Eighth Grade Scholar Advisor

We are looking for volunteers to join us this summer to work with our eighth grade scholars once a week! These volunteers will come to one of our program sites once a week to hold a book club or literacy-based discussion meetings with these scholars. We are looking for volunteers who enjoy working with middle schoolers and have a love of reading!

Time Commitment – Volunteers must be able to come for at least three consecutive weeks of our six week summer program, which runs from June 22nd, 2020 to July 31st, 2020.

Enrichment Volunteer

Come assist while our scholars enjoy a variety of afternoon activities including STEM, math, music, sports, art and more! Every afternoon, Monday through Thursday, we are in need of extra hands for these activities. This is a great time to see scholars in action!

Time commitment – 2 hours a week for 6 weeks.

Must be 16 years of age or older.
