Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

August is here, which means our August 10th reading clubs are just around the corner!

We'll also have movie-related prizes to give away to each kid, as well as a refurbished computer or tablet to give to one lucky kid at each school!

We are still currently full, though please keep checking here to see if any new spots have opened.

OPERATIONS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Veteran volunteers help out with logistics

Even if your school is full, we are particularly in need of volunteers to be Site Coordinators, Grade Level Coordinators, Check-in Helpers, and New and Returning Volunteer Trainers.

These smaller summer reading clubs are the best times to step into any of these important roles - all training pleasantly provided!

If you have volunteered with us before and would like to step into any of these rewarding roles, please e-mail info@readingtokids.org.

If you signed up for the reading clubs but can't join us, please cancel your RSVP so that another volunteer can take your place!

BE A READING TO KIDS AMBASSADOR

Volunteers at Charles White Elementary

With the 2019-20 school year beginning August 20th, we will have many opportunities for you to help us promote Reading to Kids at our partner schools as a Reading to Kids Ambassador.

There are three different ways you can help: Kindergarten Orientations, Teacher Breakfast Deliveries, and Back-to-School-Nights.

We'll supply everything you need, including what to say at the Kindergarten Orientations. Although it's great if you can speak Spanish (even a little), all of our parent materials are bilingual, and there's always someone who can translate for you at the school.

These events set the course for the rest of the year and are a wonderful way to interact with the kids, parents, and teachers.

If you are interested in being an Ambassador, please e-mail us at info@readingtokids.org or call (310) 479-7455.
