Reading to End Racism (RER) is an inter-generational literacy program designed to engage kindergarten through fifth-grade students with books and personal stories, and spark discussion about eliminating racism, bullying, and discrimination. RER provides training, resources, and support for volunteers, teachers, and parents to talk with their children about racism and discrimination. Opportunities to read take place during the school year on days Monday-Friday during the school day, generally 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Join us for our upcoming volunteer training to prepare yourself to read in classrooms and make a difference in our community. Presented by Shiquita Yarbrough, Director of Community Engagement and Equity at YWCA Boulder County.
