Reading Center Volunteers

Won’t you join us in our efforts to help give children a loving bedtime, starting the 24-hour loop of their day in the most nurturing, supportive way possible? We’re always looking for people who want to do something of value with their time, and who have a special place in their hearts for children. We have many ways you can help.

Our volunteers are very important to us. If you would like to read with our children, please complete the following one-time application steps.

We love having corporate or group volunteers at Pajama Program. If your team, group of colleagues or staff would like to volunteer, please contact us for more information.
