Join us as a volunteer with Read Ahead, and help light a fire in the life of a child! Read Ahead ignites a love of reading in young students through mentoring, improving their confidence as well as their odds for success in school and life.
Read Ahead invites Columbia faculty, staff, and students to become volunteer mentors in our reading-based mentoring program. Volunteers are paired with students at an elementary school near Columbia to mentor and read one-on-one with the same student for the duration of the child’s school year. Columbia has been partnering with Read Ahead (formerly Everybody Wins!/Power Lunch) for 17 years with mentors at PS 36 and PS 125 (both schools at 123rd & Amsterdam Ave).
