For Patients and Families
Volunteers are an integral part of the Reach Out and Read program. By reading aloud in the waiting room, volunteers will:
- Model appropriate reading skills for parents
- Demonstrate the joy and excitement of reading to children
- Help make going to the doctor a more positive experience
Volunteer hours for ROR are available Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings in Primary Care. To apply to be a Reach Out and Read volunteer, please contact Volunteer Services at 617-355-7885. Make sure to specify that you are interested in volunteering for ROR.
