SEEKING VOLUNTEERS to join the READS program in your community! We encourage you to help be a driving force behind local reading success by participating in the READS events as an event volunteer. Participating organizations, businesses and college students can receive community service hours for volunteering their time.


The READS Program hosts two events, a Spirit Night and a Recognition Night, for partnering elementary schools. Volunteers help make both events possible and further reading success in their community.

Responsibilities include keeping game stations organized, distributing prizes to students, answering questions, running event check in and ensuring everyone has a positive event experience.

The average volunteer time commitment is 2-3 hours on weeknights. All volunteers are asked to arrive at the Mall 10 minutes before the start of the event.
