Do you like books? Children? Caring Adults? Fun? Then this could be just the thing for you!
Each year, SMART (Start Making A Reader Today) reaches thousands of Oregon children with vital one-on-one reading support, and books for those who need them most.
Site Coordinators, SMART’s leadership volunteers, are vital to the success of SMART’s reading programs. From October through May, Site Coordinators provide program oversight during reading sessions, act as a key point of contact at SMART schools, and create a welcoming, organized environment for volunteer Readers and students. SMART simply cannot do their work without them.
If you have two afternoons a week to volunteer, the Site Coordinator role is an incredible opportunity to make a difference in the lives of both students and adult volunteers in our community. You can even pair up with a friend and do it as a team! Read more about this special role here. Apply online here.
PS – if you have just an hour or two a week and would like to volunteer to read with Lincoln Park Lions, you can also sign up to be a SMART Reader.
