Become part of the United Through Reading team.

Founded in 1989, United Through Reading is the nation’s first nonprofit to promote the read-aloud experience for separated military families.  At nearly 200 recording locations worldwide, Army, National Guard, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard service members can read to their children from units on ships, in tents in Afghanistan, on bases and installations around the world.

We welcome new volunteers with a strong knowledge of the military community and culture or a background in the military.  Our volunteers provide ongoing support in varied roles to include attending events, hosting resource tables and briefing at pre-deployment events, and in the San Diego area assisting with clerical tasks.

If you’d like to volunteer, please complete our volunteer application.
