Taking your lunch hour to share a love of reading

Lead to Read connects caring adults with young readers

Share this story

Every Tuesday during her lunch hour Lynn Carlton has a standing appointment with a first grader at Wendell Phillips Elementary.

In addition to her job as an urban planner at HOK in Kansas City, Missouri, Carlton is a volunteer with Lead to Read, and spends 30 minutes every week with her reading buddy Shamarian.

Jean and Lynn Rundle founded Lead to Read in 2011 with a simple premise: make it easy for working adults to volunteer at nearby low-income schools.
