Together, we are strong.

Volunteers play an essential role in helping YWCA Boulder County to empower women and eliminate racism.

Due to the pandemic, our current volunteer opportunities are virtual only:

Reading to End Racism Virtual Volunteer

Reading to End Racism (RER) is a racial justice program that uses trained volunteers to read with children in the classroom at school-wide visits in Boulder County. Age-appropriate books, personal stories, and engaging activities stimulate an insightful conversation about discrimination. This dialogue with students and teachers empowers individuals to promote peaceful relationships and supports a nurturing environment in which every student can thrive. RER has reached more than 24,000 students since 2011. 

In 2021, we are excited to bring RER to local elementary schools in a virtual format, beginning with our first virtual session at Uni Hill Elementary, 1st through 5th grade, on Friday, Jan. 29, 2021.

We are especially in need of bilingual, Spanish-speaking RER readers!
