What is Read to Succeed?

To bolster the support available to young readers in their early literacy journey, Read to Succeed places volunteers in K-5 classrooms across Tippecanoe County every year. Volunteers match with a local teacher and join their classroom for at least one hour a week for the duration of the academic year. 

Getting involved is easy!

  1. Explore classroom volunteer opportunities at uwlafayette.org/letsread.
  2. When you find the classroom that sounds best for you, sign up! We might contact you for additional information to process a limited background check. This is standard operating procedure and nothing to be alarmed by! 
  3. Connect with your teacher to set your weekly schedule. If for any reason you’d like to explore a new placement, contact us and we’ll help you out. 
  4. When your teacher is ready for you to join their classroom, start volunteering! We ask that volunteers commit to their classroom for a semester or the full academic year, volunteering at least one hour a week.
