Narrate Textbooks For Struggling Learners

Learning Ally is a nonprofit organization that offers education solutions for students who are blind, visually-impaired, or have a learning difference such as dyslexia. Volunteers contribute to this mission by narrating audiobooks for students as an alternate route to literacy. With the help of their volunteers, they produce nearly 1,000 new audiobooks each year, helping to expand their online library of more than 80,000 human-read digital audiobooks and educational materials.

WHAT: They are currently in need of volunteers to read general education and foreign language textbooks!
