Become a Virtual Reading Mentor: Lead to Read KC

Become a Virtual Reading Mentor: 
Help a student learn to read over your lunch hour this summer!

Lead to Read KC is recruiting virtual volunteers to read for 30 minutes with elementary students this summer. Help a student catch up and keep up! Most reading sessions occur around lunch time—no evenings or weekends. Apply online, complete a short online training session and begin reading with a student! You will need a computer (desktop, laptop or tablet) with audio and video, and reliable internet. 


Choose a session timeframe  or, more than one! 

  • Session A: June 3 – June 30  
  • Session B: June 21 – July 23  
  • Session C: June 22 – August 10
  • Session D: August 9 – September 3  

Choose a volunteer option that suits your individual schedule: 

  • Weekly Reading Mentor Read to an assigned student for the summer session. You can choose to read once a week or twice a week!  
  • Shared Volunteer Experience Partner with a colleague or friend to share a student and alternate reading sessions.
  • “Flextra” Reading Mentor — Participate as often as your schedule permits to fill in for volunteers who need to miss a session.
