MISSION: The mission of the School Volunteer Association of Bridgeport, Inc. is to enrich and support the learning of Bridgeport’s public school students through the involvement of volunteers from Bridgeport and surrounding communities.
WHAT WE DO: The School Volunteer Association of Bridgeport, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides volunteer services to the students of the Bridgeport Public Schools. The organization recruits, trains and places volunteers and also raises funds to support programs for city students.
The School Volunteer Association sponsors an annual, citywide
Read Aloud Day each fall during which over 600 volunteers are recruited to read enjoyable children’s books to every pre-kindergarten through sixth grade class in the Bridgeport Public Schools. Many of these participants join us as ongoing volunteers reading books to classes and tutoring or mentoring individual students throughout the remainder of the school year.
