Our volunteers encourage and inspire us! Community members regularly step forward to support Team Read’s work by donating their time to prepare program supplies/materials, assisting with coach training, serving on board committees, and more. If you are excited by our mission and want to volunteer, please contact us at

*Team Read employs local teen coaches to tutor our student readers, and so we do not offer volunteer opportunities for adults to tutor or read aloud during the program.

Spring Benefit Luncheon

Team Read’s annual Spring Benefit Luncheon supports hundreds of 2nd – 4th grade readers in Seattle and Highline who are achieving increased literacy skills with the help of their teen reading coaches. You can participate in this event by becoming a sponsor, hosting a table, or being our guest. Our next event will be held in March 2022. Watch videos from our 2021 virtual event, Team Read Rocks! on our YouTube channel.

Join the Alumni Network

No one knows better than our tutors what an impact Team Read has for both kids and teens. Each year, hundreds of Team Read reading coaches graduate high school and head off to college or begin successful careers. In 2016, we established an Alumni Network to provide special opportunities for former reading coaches, including:

  • Networking events
  • Professional advice and coaching
  • Volunteer opportunities with Team Read
  • Job listings

Former reading coaches are invited to sign up for the Alumni Network to receive emails with the latest news and opportunities from Team Read. And be sure to check out our newsletter series, Team Read Alumni: Where Are They Now?.
