A volunteer-run chapter of Room to Read


About Us

About Us Volunteer

Our chapter is made up of committed individuals who believe that World Change Starts with Educated Children. The vision of the Vancouver Chapter is to share the work of Room to Read with Vancouver residents and businesses. We support Room to Read's belief that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and will focus our goals to help provide access to education to millions of children.

We are part of a global network of changemakers bringing Room to Read to our communities and raising the critical funds we need to make education a reality for millions of children.

Together we will raise more money than we ever could alone and we are so excited for you to come along on our journey to change the world through education.
