Klamath County

The SMART Reading South Central Area team implements SMART Reading and raises funds to support SMART Reading in the Klamath Basin. In 2018-2019, we served 691 PreK through third-grade children with the help of 312 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.

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.
