Our Volunteers

Having the help of volunteers allows us to reach more youth!  Volunteers help readers build literacy skills to become proficient readers.  Without volunteers, we would not be equipped to run a successful program.  Volunteering with Saddle Up And Read is not limited to reading books to a child.  There are also opportunities to volunteer directly with our horses.

Help close the gap.

When you show up to help a child read, it encourages them to love reading.

We become one step closer to

closing the literacy gap.
