Read-Aloud Volunteer Program
Last updated on November 11, 2015

Our nonprofit program brings a love of reading to elementary school children in the West Contra Costa Unified School District. Volunteers read to children selected by their teachers and are supported by a Read-Aloud coordinator at each site.

We operate at six elementary schools in Richmond and San Pablo, CA. A volunteer reader is paired with the same student every week for a reading session. Twice a month, each student selects a new high quality book for their home library.

Founded in 1996 by the late Dr. Marilyn Nye, a retired professor of Education with a background in international children's literature. During the 2010-2011 school year 120 volunteers contributed approximately 4,000 reading hours to six elementary schools, and readers distributed 4,500 gift books to the children.
