Class/Event: 2018 Martin Luther King Day of Service Read-In Event
Date: Saturday, January 20, 2018 - 9:00 AM
Location: Winston-Salem State University
Description: The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service promotes Dr. King's ideals about serving others, equality and non-violence. On Saturday, January 20th--the Saturday after the holiday-- please join us for our 8th annual Read-In event, which this year will be hosted by Winston-Salem State University.

The Read-In promotes King's legacy of service, education, and community empowerment to children aged 4-10. Each child is matched with a "reading buddy," and the pairs participate in a variety of activity stations focused on Dr. King's legacy. At the reading station, the child will be given at least one donated age appropriate book and one new civil rights themed book to keep. Please help us make this a day on instead of a day off. Will you spend some time reading with a child and and encouraging their dreams?

As a volunteer for this opportunity, you will work with 1-2 children as a guide for 3 hours the day of the event. You will guide the children through each of our "service" stations. In addition, you will guide them to a reading station where you and the child will read a book together. The event should be completed by noon.

We are actively recruiting volunteers to serve as Reading Buddies You can sign up for the opportunity on HandsOn Connect. *All* volunteers must attend an orientation prior to the event, and all children *must* be pre-registered in order to attend.

Completing the registration form below ONLY indicates your interest in the event, and you will receive a follow-up e-mail about next steps to finalize your participation. We look forward to a great morning filled with education, service, and FUN!!
