Reading to Kids Volunteer Day (November)

Volunteer to read with Reading to Kids on their College day.  Reading to Kids is a 20 year old grass roots organization dedicated to inspiring underserved students K-5 with a love of reading. The reading clubs are at 8 LAUSD elementary schools.  Books for each grade and themes are coordinated with LAUSD. After reading, the kids have  arts and crafts and each kid receives a book to take home.  Volunteers from all schools are encouraged to go to El Cholo after the reading clubs.


For every November’s reading club, in addition to the regular activities & November’s theme of “Wonders of Science & Technology”, volunteers wear their college t-shirts and give students the opportunity to learn about their college.   This encourages the students to consider a college education. For most students, the only person they know who attended college is their teacher. (For example, kids at my school by Western & Pico didn’t know what USC or UCLA stood for or what state they were in.)

--Volunteers can register at any school— groups will be acknowledged at each school. I volunteer at LA Elementary -Karen Green

Also after each  Reading To Kids volunteer day, volunteers are encouraged to go to El Cholo on Western to meet  and relax with other volunteers. (El Cholo donates appetizers, everything else is volunteer paid).  It’s quite fun and a diverse group. So, perhaps add something like, “After you volunteer, come meet other RTK volunteers and Yale Club members at El Cholo."
