Becoming a Reading Rocks volunteer tutor is easy!
Applications are accepted year-round. Upon completing the application, you will be added to our roster. When new programs are planned you will receive an email with program specifics. If it works with your schedule and you’d like to tutor, simply reply to the email. All necessary onboarding will then be initiated.
Just fill out the application at the link below and you will be added to our roster. When you find a program that you’d like to be a part of we’ll get you onboarded. The process consists of getting a vulnerable sector check done (unless you already have one issued within one year of the program start date) and then attending a mandatory training session about a week before the program begins. That’s it!
