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.
