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’re excited to bring RER to local elementary schools in a virtual format, and we need enthusiastic volunteers to help as readers.

We need volunteers who are comfortable with video conferencing technology and committed to our mission to eliminate racism.  Spanish language ability is a big plus!
