Right to Read is always looking for volunteers to help our classes out.

Typically a volunteer will help out in class 2-3 days a week and 2-3hours per class session. Your personal volunteer schedule will be dictated by what time classes are during the semester and when you are available to volunteer. We ask that you commit to at least one semester when volunteering to maintain the relationships and support with your students.

Once you become a volunteer, you will be working directly with your teacher to figure out a Teacher's Aide plan that will most effectively utilize you within the classroom. Each class is unique in it's needs from the volunteer. You must be flexible and willing to work one on one with students. No second language skills required. No teaching background required. We do ask that you come in with patience, empathy, and an open mind willing to learn and respect other cultures needs and etiquettes.

Volunteers must attend Orientation at the beginning of their service. The orientation is 3 hours long and will go over the volunteers roles and expectations as well as some historical background of our students. If interested please look over the Classroom Aide descriptions. Please also fill out an ESL/CRESL Volunteer application form and bring it to Right to Read. We will review your application and let you know when you will start.
