Reach Out and Read Illinois Associates Board

The Reach Out and Read Illinois Associates Board is a group of young professionals focused on planning media and fundraising events to support ROR Illinois. Our Associates Board holds monthly meetings and has held a successful ‘bar night’ fundraiser as well as a 3-course dinner fundraiser at the Publican Restaurant in Chicago. More exciting fundraising events are in the works!

We encourage enthusiastic groups of friends or colleagues with a passion for literacy promotion to join this board or to start their own!  Do you have a group of friends who would come together to plan a fun event for a great cause?  We want to hear from you!  We hope that Associates Board will form and find ways to support ROR Illinois from:

  • Co-workers at a company
  • Pediatric residents at an academic medical center
  • Medical students, or early childhood education students, at a university program
  • Book clubs
  • Alumni groups
  • Any group of friends!

Please contact Jazz at if you are interested in joining or starting your own Associates Board.
