Learn About Our Chapters

A Global Network of Volunteers

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.

Each chapter comes together to make a profound impact on our ability to create world change, bringing Room to Read to their communities and raising the critical funds we need to make education a reality for millions of children.

As a chapter volunteer you have the opportunity to:

  • Connect. Join forces with globally-oriented citizens in your community.
  • 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.
