Volunteer with Reading to Kids this Saturday!

Reading to Kids organizes monthly reading clubs on the second Saturday of every month at seven downtown Los Angeles elementary schools (
http://readingtokids.org/AboutUs/School_Map_Large.html). The reading clubs run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pairs of volunteer readers read aloud to small groups of students from the elementary school (typically between 4 and 6 children per group) in a fun environment. Teachers at the elementary school provide supervision and guidance throughout the morning.

Our next reading clubs are this Saturday, December 8th. The will feature a holiday theme and will include a visit from Santa, a raffle for the kids, and fun holiday books and crafts!

Please visit
