Student-Athlete Volunteers

High-school and college student-athletes from all across the county volunteer as positive role models for the children we visit throughout the year in our reading program. They read with the 2nd graders and take the time to discuss the life lesson contained in each story. Student-athletes emphasize the value of education and reading, and explain to the children that if they don't get good grades and try their best at school, they don't get to participate in sports. 

VIRTUAL READINGS: Student-athlete volunteers also have the opportunity to connect with and inspire young minds from anywhere in the country through our virtual reading program. 

If you are a student-athlete and interested in paying it forward, complete the form below and we will contact you soon!
