Holiday Opportunities

Congratulations! We’re celebrating because so many of you have started reading with students!  Currently, we have over 1000 volunteers reading in 11 school districts. Let’s ponder that for a moment.  There are over 1000 of you reading with 2000+ students weekly across the Greater Austin area.  How humbling and amazing is that?!


Upcoming Opportunities


We always in need of more volunteers! With literacy being on of the largest problems facing Central Texas, we need volunteers.  Do you have a family member, friend, or someone you know at Church that you could introduce to Education Connection?  Our current recruiting will run through February 13th, 2020.

For more information contact


Education Connection values keeping operating costs low, while still serving thousands of students.  It cost approximately $100 to support each student that is a part of the Education Connection program. This goes to cover staffing, training, volunteer supplies, printing, among other necessities.

Would you consider directing your end of year giving to…

One student – $100

Ten students – $1000

A classroom – $2500

Sincerely, no donation is too small to help the efforts of reading to more children in the Austin and surrounding areas.

Visit the Education Connection website to give. All donations are tax deductible.


We believe that the success of Education Connection and the impact the program has had in the last 10 years is directly correlated the prayer.  James 5:16 says, “…the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”  Would you join in praying for Education Connection, the volunteers, the schools, and most important the students?

Thank You

Thank you for your interest, commitment, and involvement in helping us accomplish our mission of “…every child reading by 3rd grade!”  Initiatives like this are impossible without the support of Churches and community partners.  From the bottom of our hearts – THANK YOU!

May this holiday season be filled with laughter, peace, and much joy…
