Help Kids Read with SitStayRead!

About this Opportunity

Do you have a passion for reading? Come and volunteer with SitStayRead as a Book Buddy!

As a Book Buddy volunteer, you will work with a small group of students and a SitStayRead staff member on different reading and writing activities. No previous classroom or reading experience needed. We are recruiting for our two programs Little Buddies (1st grade) and Barkin Buddies (Kindergarten).

SitStayRead is a non-profit that uses an engaging curriculum to advance children’s literacy skills through our trained literacy volunteers and Certified Reading Assistance Dogs. We help Kindergarten through 1st Grade students on the South and West sides of Chicago.

We have in-person opportunities with volunteers spending 1.5 hours, at least once a week over six consecutive weeks (the number of sessions attended are flexible) working with students and staff anytime between the hours of 8a to 3p, Monday through Friday.

So, what’s next? After you apply, our Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you with further instructions. We really hope to see you in our classrooms!

Good For: Adults
