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 806 children and 341 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.

Since its inception in 1999, Reading to Kids has given more than 116,023 prize books to children who attend the reading clubs, donated more than 21,025 hardcover books to school libraries, and our volunteers have spent over 135,498 hours reading to kids. Click here ( to see our entry on Wikipedia.

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!
