A Global Movement
Our chapter network is made up of groups of passionate and committed individuals who collectively represent Room to Read's global volunteer network and lead local outreach, fundraising and activism in their communities.

- Build skills. Flex new and old skills in leadership, management, public speaking, and events.
- Inspire. Channel your passion and inspire your community with a cause you love.
