Reading to Kids thanks the members of L.A. Works who volunteer
at our reading clubs.
"LA Works was founded in 1991 by a group of concerned citizens from the
Entertainment, Business and Government sectors to: increase volunteer participation in community service projects;
provide community service organizations with access to volunteer labor and
other resources; and educate and encourage people to engage in the broader social issues
affecting the Los Angeles community. On a weekly basis, LA
Works offers a variety of community service projects. LA Works' volunteers work
hand-in-hand with hundred of nonprofit social service agencies throughout the
city in order to improve the quality of life in our community.
LA Works offers one-time as well as long-term projects. Volunteers can spend
a morning painting a school or planting a community garden; or they can get make
a 2-3 month commitment to tutor children in reading, writing and arithmetic."
