Please call or email your volunteer Opportunity Leader regarding COVID-19 cancellations and new guidelines.

Dear Volunteer,

We hope this message finds you healthy and safe. hosts over 40 different literacy partners, each of whom are responsible for managing their own volunteer opportunities and volunteers. Due to the rapidly escalating and dynamic nature of the Coronavirus outbreak, many of our literacy partners (especially our school partners) have been unable to continue some of their volunteer opportunities. With the associated guidance from the CDC, national, state and local officials regarding large group gatherings and events, and social distancing, we are encouraging all volunteers to contact their volunteer opportunity leader before heading out to serve. Volunteers should make sure that the service event they signed up for is still taking place and should ask if any new requirements have been set by the volunteer opportunity.

We appreciate your support and understanding as we navigate through the COVID-19 outbreak. Your health and well-being are at the utmost importance to us. We will certainly need your volunteer support when operations return to normal. As of now, some virtual, at-home, and a few in-person volunteer opportunities are occurring with sanitizing and other protective guidelines in place.

Please continue to check back on for more information as it becomes available.

Sincerely, Technical Support Team
