A literacy-focused volunteer organization affiliated with the UW Madison School of Library and Information Studies

Volunteers are vital to the success of Allied Drive Literacy Time. Volunteers read one-on-one with Learning Center students in second and third grade, sing group songs, and work to make reading a positive and fun experience for the children of Allied Drive Learning Center.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Student Coordinator Claire Parrish at slisallied@gmail.com. Any interest is appreciated!
