Reading Seed Coaches are excited to share their love

of reading.

Do you find joy in seeking out the perfect book? Enjoy learning something new? Think everyone should have access to programs and materials that spark a love of reading? If so, this is the volunteer gig for you!

Reading Seed Coaches work one-to-one with students in kindergarten – 2nd grade and encourage a love of reading. Coaches are guided by their students’ interests and provide a non-judgmental environment in which children can explore books and stories of their choosing. By honoring their students’ knowledge and strengths, coaches help increase students’ confidence and help them identify reading as a positive, engaging experience.

Our most successful coaches are flexible, communicative, positive, and open to trying new things. The ideal candidate is joyful and approaches challenges with patience and a positive, strengths-based attitude. At Literacy Connects we consider ourselves to be lifelong learners and are looking for volunteers who are excited to learn as well. 

Curious about the commitment?

After completing initial training:

  • Coaches will make a one school-year commitment
  • Coaches meet with three students one-to-one for 30 minutes each
  • Coaching takes place in the school during regular school hours at times designated as least intrusive by the school site coordinator
  • Literacy Connects offers resources to support coaches as they work with their students, including our library, continuing education, and staff support. Reading Seed also thrives on collaboration between volunteers in our supportive coach community.
