Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Reading to Kids is an organization composed of volunteers helping to provide children with an enthusiasm for reading and a brighter future.
Reading to Kids organizes monthly reading clubs at elementary schools that are held on the second Saturday of every month. The reading clubs run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pairs of volunteer readers read aloud to small groups of students from the elementary school (typically between 4 and 6) in a fun environment. Teachers at the elementary school provide supervision and guidance throughout the morning.
Reading to Kids is a richly rewarding volunteer experience. Well-organized. Respectful of volunteers. And the fact that you're able to install a love of reading in kids makes this a deeply satisfying volunteer opportunity.
This is a wonderful organization that empowers volunteers to do something really meaningful -- and does a great job in the way they organize their volunteers to do it! Highly recommended.
