Volunteer at the next Reading to Kids

  • September 8, 2012 · 9:00 AM

Come volunteer at the next Reading to Kids monthly reading club! We meet on the second Saturday of each month 9:00am-12:00pm at seven different elementary schools in LAUSD.

 

You must register on the Reading to Kids website at http://readingtokids.org first before you RSVP.

Reading to Kids is a grassroots organization dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for success in the future. To this end, Reading to Kids gathers on average 784 children and 310 volunteers at reading clubs on the second Saturday of every month at seven Los Angeles elementary schools.

At the monthly reading clubs, pairs of volunteers read aloud to small groups of children, while their parents receive training on how to encourage their children to read at home. Kids, parents, teachers, and school libraries receive book donations at the end of the Reading Clubs.

These are important donations, as 60 percent of low-income homes do not have age-appropriate reading materials for children.

There is no long-term commitment. Once you register, you can decide how often to volunteer. Whether it's every month, or once a year, we always appreciate your time!

-8 1/2 x 11 white paper

-8 1/2 x 11 colored paper

-10 x 12 white envelopes
