Volunteering Makes the Difference

Read to Rise (RR) places books in the hands of children in classrooms and provides more support through Bridge Ambassadors who share their time with a child by reading one-on-one with a child or participating in interactive and motivational activities sponsored by the Bridge Foundation.

Do for the children.   You can help make a difference.

Read to Rise  provides an effective and creative way to increase the accessibility and availability of books for children in schools and within their homes.  Through book rotation, children receive books to read in the classroom and to take home to interactively read with their families.  Once books are read by the children, books are shared with other classrooms and libraries within the school.
