This April Room to Read hosted our annual Chapter Leadership Conference, a chance for our volunteers to come together for four days of insightful seminars, workshops, and fun-filled activities at our San Francisco office. To date, Room to Read has benefited 11.5 million children across 20,000 communities in 14 countries around the world and it wouldn’t be possible without our volunteer network! 

While chapter representatives walked away with a wealth of knowledge and inspiration, they also enjoyed fun-filled evenings, ranging from sight-seeing tours to Bollywood dancing!
