Volunteer Opportunities

Sign Up Now!


We're so glad you're interested in volunteering with BEGIN WITH BOOKS.

Because most public events have been cancelled, and because access to school and childcare facilities is restricted, many of our volunteer activities have been curtailed. If you are interested in being notified of future opportunities, please add your name and contact information to our listserv at the SignUpGenius link above.

In the meantime, please help us by spreading the word about the BEGIN WITH BOOKS opportunity. If you know families with small children, please help them to enroll using the information on this website.

Volunteering at registration events is fun and rewarding. There is always a knowledgeable veteran to train new volunteers.

Check the SIGN UP link above for available opportunities or email beginwithbooks@gmail.com for more information.
