They should plan for a 1 hour time commitment total.Volunteers can sign up for one of the following frequencies:- WEEKLY VOLUNTEER - same time each week - SHARED VOLUNTEER - paired with another volunteer; often 2x per month - FLEXTRA - read 1x per month, read at the same school with student as needed To sign up, complete the online volunteer application at Please indicate you learned about this opportunity through Unite KC.
