Registration Limit is 15!

RPCV/W is partnering with several cause-focused organizations to pitch in for a community literacy event at one of 6 DC public schools. Details are still being finalized. Register here if you'd like to participate. Please let us know if you have transportation and wouldn't mind giving others a ride. 

On the day of the event, volunteers will:
  • Write a letter to a student inside the gifted book(s), and share why reading is important;
  • Help assemble a literacy-ready pack for students;
  • Paint a literacy-focused mural;
  • Read a book on tape, which will be shared with students during their reading hours; and/or
  • Assist with cleaning the library.
