August 10th "Arts & Entertainment" reading clubs are this Saturday! We have movie-related prizes for every kid, and even a refurbished computer or tablet to give to one lucky kid at each school!
We may have a few open spots available, so please continue to sign up or keep checking back.
If you are signed up but know you can't join us,
cancel your RSVP here before 3:00 p.m. tomorrow so someone else can read!
These smaller summer reading clubs are the perfect time for those who have volunteered with us a few times recently to step into and learn any of our important Operations roles - all training very pleasantly provided!
Please e-mail us at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer for any of the following roles:
GLC where needed at any school
Training Coordinator at Alta Loma, Gratts, or Magnolia
Check-in Helper at Gratts, Los Angeles, or Politi
Food Runner at Alta Loma
Bagel Runner (picking up from a shop in Marina del Rey
tomorrow at 4:25pm or in Santa Monica tomorrow at 2:20pm)
Help! Site Coordinator at any school (August is a great month to learn this role!)
If your school is full and you are an experienced volunteer with us, let us know if you can fill any of the above roles and we'll happily add in your RSVP.
BE A READING TO KIDS AMBASSADOR
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
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
email@example.com or call (310) 479-7455.
