Creating impact by volunteer engagement in early grade reading

Answer these questions (adapted from pg. 22 in the Guide):

Have we declared early grade reading as an impact goal?

What work do we already have underway in early grade reading?

Will new or increased volunteer engagement in early grade reading have a lasting impact? If so, how? If not, what is the plan for developing strategies where can volunteers make the greatest impact?

Who else in the community is leading efforts in early grade reading? What is the volunteer component of their work? How can we avoid duplication, and instead find our unique role? What gaps exist that United Way could fill?

How do we connect volunteering with opportunities to give and advocate?

How can we ensure that our strategy reflects the diversity of our community and is inclusive?
