EVERYBODY WINS LOS ANGELES Overview
Profile ( less )
Target demographics: We aim to reach low-income K-6 elementary students in Los Angeles County.
Geographic areas served: Los Angeles County
Programs: EVERYBODY WINS! signature program, Power Lunch, is a lunchtime literacy and mentoring program with a proven track record of improving reading skills and attitudes. Each week, adult volunteers from businesses travel on their lunch breaks to an elementary school to share one hour of one-on-one reading with a low income child.
Readers Are Leaders pairs upper grade student mentors with younger students for weekly one-on-one, one hour reading sessions. Readers Are Leaders helps both sets of students develop their love and appreciation for reading while promoting community service to student mentors.
In our Book Buddies program, we provide a book geared towards a younger reader for each of our students who are then charged with passing along the book to a younger family member, neighbor or friend.
EVERYBODY WINS! - the volunteers, their companies, the schools, the students and ultimately society.
