The Fort Worth ISD offers volunteer opportunities for every parent, resident and business partner as part of the 100X25 FWTX Literacy Initiative. The 100X25 FWTX Literacy Initiative is a coordinated cradle-to-career strategy that aligns the goals and resources of FWISD and the community. Mayor Betsy Price helped launch the Fort Worth Literacy Partnership with one goal: 100 percent of third-graders reading at grade level by 2025.

Volunteer in a school to help children become proficient readers and set the foundation for their success in school, career, citizenship and life. As a 100X25 FWTX Literacy Initiative volunteer, you will be given training and support to make your volunteer experience meaningful and beneficial to the student.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, fill out an online application with a consent to a background check, and attend an orientation session/training. To volunteer or get more information contact Alma Pohler, FWISD volunteer specialist, 817-814-2973. Please, indicate “100X25 FWTX” in your phone call or email. Trainings become available starting Nov. 9.

Partners with the District on this strategy include the City of Fort Worth, as well as leaders and volunteers from the city’s business sector, higher education, nonprofits and faith-based community.
