Book preparation events are held regularly each week. Preparing 41,000 books per month is a task that can only be accomplished with the help of dedicated volunteers.
Spread the Word Nevada℠ Mentors act as reading companions for at-risk students attending local elementary schools. Students are waiting to be matched.
Breakfast/Snack Time with Books℠
Extra hands are needed for our Breakfast/Snack Time with Books℠ programs, which are held monthly at 38 of our adopted schools.
Special Events require limited time commitments from volunteers to ensure that each event is a smashing success.
At Spread the Word Nevada℠, we have an endless supply of books that need preparation, so this is the volunteer opportunity that we need the most help with.
Once you have applied as an individual volunteer, you can check out our calendar of Community Book Preparations. You may select any event on the calendar and simply walk on in!
Once you have applied as a group leader, please contact Debbie Sandusky to schedule a Book Preparation event for your group. You may also call Debbie at 702-715-5688
There is no shortage of children at our schools that would love to have a mentor to help with reading and other fun activities.
Spread the Word Nevada℠ visits our adopted schools each month for our Breakfast/Snack Time with Books℠ program. Volunteers are needed to assist the facilitators.
This volunteer opportunity will require you to travel to a school and help our facilitator with things like overseeing participant sign in, collecting reading logs, overseeing book distribution, and cleaning up. If you are interested in helping with Breakfast/Snack Time with Books℠, please email Cindy Hensel or call 702-564-7809.
