Read to Me

UMOM New Day Centers partners with Hands On Greater Phoenix for Read to Me, a weekly literacy program for UMOM children ages 4 and up. Established twelve years ago with only a handful of books and a few volunteers, Read to Me is now a strong and lively program with an average attendance of 30-40 children who interact with 30-40 volunteers each week.  The program encourages literacy through positive one-on-one interactions. The children at UMOM look forward to picking out and reading a new book with their volunteer each week and it’s volunteers like you that help them foster a love of reading. This volunteer opportunity is great for individuals, families, civic groups and corporations.
