2018 MLK Day of Service Read-In Reading Buddy

The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday and Day of Service promotes Dr. King's ideals about serving others, equality and non-violence. On Saturday, January 20, 2018, please join us for a Read-In event at Winston-Salem State University in Winston-Salem, NC. The Read-In promotes literacy and service for children ages 4-10. Will you donate your time to reading with a child, helping them write letters to our troops, and encouraging them to pursue their dreams? As a volunteer for this opportunity, you will work with 1-2 children as a guide for 3 hours the day of the event. You will guide the children through each of our "service" stations. In addition, you will guide them to a reading station where you and the child will read a book together. Each child will be given at least one donated age appropriate book and one new civil rights themed book to keep. 

All volunteers are required to attend a brief orientation session prior to serving on January 20th.  Orientation will be offered on the dates below at the locations specified.  There is no need to register to attend orientation.
