Target demographics: Underserved elementary school children and their families in the Los Angeles area

Mission:
Reading to Kids is a grassroots organization dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success.

Reading to Kids organizes monthly reading clubs on the second Saturday of each month at elementary schools in the downtown Los Angeles area. Pairs of volunteer readers read to small groups of elementary school children in a fun environment. The reading clubs run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Teachers provide guidance throughout the morning.

To volunteer at our next reading clubs, please visit www.readingtokids.org where you’ll need to register and RSVP. For more information, please feel free to e-mail us at info@readingtokids.org or call (310) 479-7455.

From a start of only 8 volunteers reading to 20 children at one school in May 1999, Reading to Kids has grown to an average of 460 volunteers reading to an average of 1,100 children at seven schools every month.

Since the organization began, over 88,000 books have been donated to students attending our reading clubs, and nearly 15,000 hardcover books have been donated to school libraries.
