In addition to welcoming individual volunteers, Read Between the Bars welcomes student, church, or other community organizations seeking group volunteer opportunities.
A group volunteer experience typically involves two to three hours of service. Group members meet with a volunteer coordinator who shows them how to fill requests by selecting books from our collection of donated books, filling out the forms to enclose with the books, and preparing the books for mailing.
We ask for a donation of $10 per group member to help us cover the costs of printing forms and mailing books. However, our volunteer coordinators are also happy to plan service opportunities that are within your group’s budget. For more information, you can read service opportunities information sheet (PDF) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
