When you share your story as a Learning Ally volunteer with the world, you’re growing awareness of the literacy crisis in the U.S. and the challenges so many students face. We need volunteers to talk about their work serving students and educators at Learning Ally. The more we share our mission, the more educators, schools, and families can access our solutions. Together, we're working to solve the literacy crisis and achieve equity in education for all.  


So how can you be a Learning "Ally" and share your impact?
