RIF Pittsburgh Seeks Mentors for Elementary Students

Reading Is FUNdamental Pittsburgh is seeking volunteers for its Everybody Wins! program.


Everybody Wins! is a school-based literacy mentoring program that pairs kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-grade students with a caring adult to build a meaningful relationship while sharing conversation, good books, and literacy-related activities for one hour a week. These consistent, one-on-one experiences increase a child’s opportunity for success, both academically and in life.

Help an elementary student build literacy skills and develop a lifelong love of reading by volunteering as a mentor today!
