SMART Reading has great opportunities to volunteer with and for kids all across Oregon! Every day we mobilize our statewide community of volunteers to make a direct impact on kids through shared reading sessions and books to keep. Because the simple magic and joy of a shared book can change a child’s life trajectory. 

If you are looking for a new volunteer opportunity, head to our New Volunteers page. For one-time volunteer opportunities in the Portland area, you can also check out volunteer sessions at the Children’s Book Bank.

If you are already a SMART volunteer, head to our Active Volunteers page to find helpful resources and announcements.
