READING TO KIDS AMBASSADORS
NEEDED TO HELP KICK OFF
THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR
With the 2023-24 school year started, we 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:
Teacher Breakfast Deliveries
Classroom Visits next week
We'll supply everything you need, including what to say if parents ask questions and to the kids during classroom visits (explained below). 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.
Next week we need ambassadors to visit any of our schools for an
hour during the school day to visit each classroom to encourage kids to come to the September 9th
reading clubs held on their campuses. Reply to this email if you can be an ambassador for an hour that
Our Ambassadors always have a great time with the
kids and parents - come find out why!
If you can be an Ambassador, please e-mail us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call (310) 479-7455.

Please join us in thanking Diego Cruz for his past 10 months of dedicated service to Reading to Kids!
Yesterday was Diego's last day of his Public Allies AmeriCorps Apprentice service with us, and we could not have had such a successful return to in-person, on campus reading clubs without him!
Diego, we at Reading to Kids will miss working with you in the office and at schools, and we wish you the very best as you work with your next organization through AmeriCorps!
