Let’s Recap…

Becoming a SMART Reading volunteer is a meaningful way to make a direct impact on kids in your community. And it’s fun! We hope you’ll enjoy the experience as much as they will.

To recap, here are your essential responsibilities:

  • Participate in one of SMART Reading’s models: Virtual SMART, Classroom Read-alouds, Pen Pal or in-person SMART (as soon as that’s an option again) and make the commitment to attend each scheduled weekly reading session. 
  • Undergo a background check and participate in a volunteer orientation.
  • Provide a fun, individualized reading experience for the children.
  • Follow SMART Reading’s safety policies.
