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:

  • Make a weekly commitment to read at a neighborhood school for the school year (most programs operate from mid-October through mid-May).
  • Undergo a background check and attend an in-person orientation.
  • Provide a fun, one-on-one reading experience for the children.
  • Follow SMART Reading’s safety policies.
