Klamath County

The SMART Reading South Central Area team implements SMART Reading and raises funds to support SMART Reading in the Klamath Basin. In 2019-2020, we served 873 PreK through third-grade children with the help of 485 local volunteers. We are focused on recruiting more volunteers and establishing strong financial support among our communities to ensure we can continue this important work of empowering local children through reading.

Volunteer Opportunities:

2021-22 UPDATE: Our services will remain virtual through at least December 2021 and we’ve made adaptations in how we deliver our program that allow us to continue serving students with reading support and books to keep. As a result, our volunteer opportunities have changed. Click here for more information on volunteering with SMART Reading. For a list of sites we serve in the South Central area click here, or call 541-273-2424.

Youth Advisory Board:

The South Central SMART Reading team is lucky to have an incredible group of local high school students dedicated to raising friends and funds for SMART Reading. The SMART Reading Youth Advisory Board actively supports SMART Reading by volunteering as Readers and Site Coordinators, hosting and supporting events, calling local supporters, helping with mailings and so much more.
