“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn
Every individual READ tutor makes our work possible. We are grateful for our dedicated group of volunteers and to the hundreds of individuals interested in offering their support and compassion to our students.
The READ Center is always accepting volunteer applications. After receiving your application, we will reach out to you regarding tutor training and orientation. Registration is required.
