Reading is an essential skill for everyday life, and not enough kids are reading these days. Less and less children are reading books in particular (YouTube captions maybe, but not books!). Reading Partners, a national nonprofit who brings volunteers into schools to help kids learn to read is a great organization. Now they're expanding their work in Charlotte. Does your community need more volunteers reading in schools? Contact Reading Partners and volunteer. They may already be working with your school system!
