Volunteers are the heart and soul of Read Muskegon. We wouldn’t be able to provide our services without their dedication and enthusiasm. You don’t have to be a teacher or have a background in literacy to be a tutor, our staff will provide you with all of the training and support that you’ll need.

Please consider volunteering in one of the following ways:

  • 1-1 Tutors – You will work one on one with an adult who is struggling to read, helping them to identify and reach real life goals such as obtaining a GED, applying for a job, or reading with their child. 1-1 tutors meet weekly with their learner and we ask that you make a minimum of a one year commitment.
  • Event/Workshop Volunteer – Assist our staff with fun events such as family literacy nights, ABC’s of Cooking classes, or the Holiday Literacy Village.

To serve as a volunteer we ask that you meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Good verbal communication skills
  • Agree to a criminal background check
  • Attend a Volunteer Orientation & Training
  • Cultural sensitivity to people of diverse backgrounds
