Reading is Leading is a program allowing volunteers to promote literacy and inspire a passion for reading among Para Los Niños students across our charter campuses.

You can help unlock a student’s love for reading in two easy ways:

    • Volunteer for a 45-minute reading session, where you will read to students and engage them in conversation about the book’s theme and characters.

    • Make a donation below to support our literacy fund.
