I have volunteered with the "Let's Read" program for about a year and a half now, and it's become a cause that's very near and dear to my heart. These under-served kids are hardworking, hilarious, and adorable...and they have so much potential; they just need some attention and guidance. I've fallen in love with their positive spirit and determination to grow...tutoring them is such a rewarding experience - I definitely recommend it!

L.A. Works does a great job of making sure that volunteer opportunities are well-managed and treat volunteers right. All opportunities are vetted and are either managed by L.A. Works trained project leaders, or are referrals to credible partners who work with L.A. Works.
