We have two different types of volunteer opportunities; the first is to process the books which we then distribute to our eight pediatric health center sites. The second involves reading aloud to children in the waiting rooms of eight, urban pediatric clinics in Milwaukee with the goal of helping children develop a love of reading and books, and to model read-aloud techniques for the families.

Read our volunteer overview.

The pediatricians at these clinics will continue your good work by counseling parents on the importance of sharing books with their children, and by giving books to the child during the well-child visits.

Volunteers must complete certain requirements, submit a volunteer application, have a background check completed, two TB skin tests, and submit an immunization record.

Volunteers are given an on-site orientation to introduce them to the clinic environment. They are given advice on reading aloud techniques, interacting with parents, and sharing literacy referral information.
