Literacy ends poverty. Reading is where it all begins. Join us.

Volunteers who love to read fuel our literacy projects

We’ve had very good success engaging volunteers who have come to us thanks to VolunteerMatch and other web sites. They come with lots of energy, a passion for reading, a love for magazines, and great ideas. Volunteers are helping with outreach to magazines and other media so that we can reach those who need help and who want to sponsor literacy programs in their own communities. They are organizing magazine drives that share magazines with children and families in homeless and other shelters. They are recycling magazines so they can bring joy to others. They are students, and professionals, and mom and dad who want to help make a difference in the lives of their neighbors. We welcome volunteer support with wide open arms.
