Reading to Kids is a grassroots organization that works with the Los Angeles School District in 8 schools to inspire a love of reading for K-5 students. On the 2nd Saturday of each month, students participate in reading clubs with a monthly theme.

  • Volunteers are paired together to read a designated book and then do arts & crafts (materials are supplied).
  • Volunteers will be provided with training that morning; each grade has a Grade Level Coordinator who will provide additional tips and information.
  • No preparation is necessary; a tip sheet with suggested (not mandatory) discussion questions, vocabulary, and arts & crafts is provided.  

Minimum Age: 18

Once you register, you can pick any school you like. After you pick a school there is a drop down menu to select "Yale University" in the group section.

Meet other Reading to Kids volunteers after the Clubs at El Cholo Restaurant, 1121 S. Western Ave.
