Volunteers in a NYC classroom

Keep Calm and Volunteer!

Help us solve the literacy problem, create lasting impact and make a difference!

Join the Learning Ally Volunteer Nation

We rely on a network of over 1,000 volunteers to bring our mission to life! Volunteer Nation is working to solve the literacy problem - the 65% of students who are not proficient in reading by 4th grade. Our volunteers share their talents to create human-read audiobooks and provide support in roles that help us reach the 30 million students who struggle to read. By volunteering, you can help remove the barriers that stand in the way of our students’ right to education.
 
Our volunteer opportunities are mostly virtual and can be done from the comfort of your home. Check out the various volunteer roles below!
