Volunteer your team

Team building with a purpose

Giving your employees a volunteering experience with a purpose is a great way to engage and empower them. Imagine how rewarding it would be if your next team-building event was one that changes a child’s future.

By volunteering with us, your teams can see children’s faces light up as they read them a story at a school Reading Rally. Or they can feel the excitement of organizing a book drive knowing that the books they collect will go to children who may have never owned one.

And the opportunities don’t stop there. We always have events and programs going on and need kind and committed people to help us make them successful. Talk to us about how your team can help us share the gift of reading with children.

“When we can see the results through the eyes of the kids at a Reading Rally when 30 or 40 of our employees spend two hours on the mat in a school gym reading aloud, you see a direct result of time and effort.”
