Book Fair Helper

Page Ahead is looking for volunteers to help students at our Book Up Summer program book fairs. These occur in the spring, April - June, during weekday school hours. At these book fairs at-risk kids grade K-2 will select 12 brand new, free-to-them books to take home for summer reading. For many of these at-risk children, this will be the first book they own.

Story Time Volunteer

Page Ahead Children's Literacy Program is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to read to children in preschools and kindergartens, September - June.

Volunteers can choose a weekly, bimonthly or monthly schedule and must commit for a full school calendar year. Volunteers must enjoy interacting with children and be comfortable "in the spotlight." Volunteers must agree to a background check. Story Time Volunteer flyer
