Student reading book to class
There are currently no programs in your state, but we would love to change that!

The 2nd & 7 Foundation welcomes all college and high-school athletic programs that wish to promote reading in their community. Volunteers are needed to connect student-athletes with local 2nd graders and work with The 2nd & 7 Foundation to administer the program.

To learn more about the opportunity to volunteer and start a program in Maryland, please contact sara.boyden@secondandseven.com .
