SMART Reading (Start Making A Reader Today)



SMART Reading is a nationally recognized, community-funded nonprofit that partners with a statewide network of educators, volunteers, and advocates to help Oregon's children become confident readers and productive citizens.

SMART Reading engages a diverse set of community volunteers to provide program support as Site Coordinators, Team Members, and Readers. We also offers opportunities to those who wish to act as Ambassadors to increase awareness and support fundraising.

SMART Reading partners with hundreds of schools statewide to deliver proven literacy support to PreK-third grade children. Teachers recommend students for participation in the program, which complements the school's curriculum.

The program typically operates during the school year between October and May. By volunteering for 1 hour a week, your donation of time can help reverse the statistic that 32% of Oregon's 4th graders read below the basic level.

Mission: SMART Reading envisions an Oregon where all kids can realize their full potential through reading.
