Lunchtime Reading Program

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90001

Date: 2/9/2017 Spots Remaining: 500


Reading to a Child maximizes a children’s prospect for academic success by providing them with a one-on-one reading experience with trained adult volunteer reading mentors.

Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: Once a week volunteers meet their students at their assigned elementary school and read aloud to them during the child's lunch period. 

Time Commitment: Volunteers have the option of once per week for one hour or every other week with a colleague beginning October through May. 

Benefits: When a volunteer reads aloud to a child, both parties have a joyful, rewarding experience that instills a love of reading, improves literacy skills, and enhances a child’s self-confidence. Research shows that reading aloud to children is the single most important activity for eventual success in reading, a key factor for success in school, work, and life.
