Volunteer to Read

1Rolling Readers programs make a positive impact on more than 5,000 at-risk Brevard County elementary school children by encouraging a love of reading. Local business people and dedicated volunteers visit classrooms each week to read aloud, work individually on reading skills, or meet with small groups of children to conduct fun, hands-on activities that reinforce reading.

Strengthening literacy skills benefits a child’s overall educational and personal growth, increasing their likelihood of high school graduation. It also leaves volunteers with a sense of fulfillment, knowing they helped a child in such a profound way. Our unwavering commitment to the Rolling Readers mission depends on volunteers to make it happen. For just an hour a week, you can change the course of a child’s life.
