Subject: Volunteers Needed to Read Aloud to Kids - JOIN BOOKPALS



An Audience Needs YOU!


BookPALS, (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) is a program of the Screen Actors Guild Foundation.  You don't have to be union to volunteer.  We put readers into under-served elementary schools to read aloud to children on a weekly basis. These are kids who may have no one at home who can read to them. This the the most fun you can have volunteering! You'll have a chance to practice your voices and dialects before the most appreciative audience ever, AND you'll be helping kids enjoy books and reading.  Training and book lists provided.
