Who We Are

The Volunteer Nation is a community of over 1,000 individuals across the world who graciously support Learning Ally’s mission. Volunteers share their talents to create human-read audiobooks and provide support in roles that help us reach the 30 million students who struggle to read. Join the Volunteer Nation in smashing the literacy divide and bring equitable education for all.

Connect with the Community!

    
volunteer quote: I volunteer for Learning Ally because I ... want to help share stories that speak to me. I've always been a reader, and books have meant a lot to me. I know how frustrating struggling to read can be and appreciate how good audiobooks can pull me into the world of a story so that I can't stop listening until I've finished the book.

“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” ~Winston Churchill


Building Books for Student Success; Success!

Thank you all! Our annual fundraising goals have been met and in no small part because of your efforts.


BBSS Goal Reached


The final sums are still being tallied and some donations are still coming through, but we can announce that our fundraising goal of $100,000 has been met, and even surpassed. 
Every year our fundraising efforts are an "all-hands" effort. Learning Ally staff and volunteers reach out to friends and family, corporate sponsors, and make our own donations to ensure that we can continue to support students, teachers, and literacy programs of all sorts. This year was especially challenging, with our drive falling at the "end" of a year upset by the COVID crisis but we did not let those stresses and strains hold us back from our goals. 


We can afford to fund the accounts of over 740 Learning Ally families with what we've raised!


Awareness of Learning Ally has grown as well. A fundraising opportunity is not just about money - it's also about sharing our mission. Thanks to volunteers and staff spreading the word of Learning Ally's plans to confront the literacy crisis in America more students, teachers, and parents are aware of our efforts and eager to join them.
Thank you all!


Spotlight on Dyslexia 


Screens depicting different video conferencesThis weekend is one of our Spotlight Learning Series events. Every summer and winter we organize large online seminars for teachers across the country, so that they can learn more about literacy, disability, and new learning methods. This next event focuses on Dyslexia and features seminars and presentations in addition to a virtual meeting space that attendees can use to chat and network. This year we're happy to have Leaning Ally volunteers be a part of the support team. 


Next winter we'll present our Spotlight on Early Literacy event. If you're interested in volunteering to support those efforts then be sure to follow the Volunteer Nation channel on Twist and look for the announcements.
