What is a Reading Hero?

A Reading Hero is a person who desires to work with children one-on-one or in small groups. He or she is someone who conducts him/herself in a professional manner, is reliable and prompt, neat in appearance, patient with students, shows personal concern for students, and helps to widen the horizons of students.


Smoketree Volunteers

Smoketree has a partnership with several community organizations. These volunteers work with students and teachers. They have bonded with the students and feel like they are a part of the Smoketree Team.

We sincerely welcome you to become a part of Cougar Country!
