Join LAJCC members for the first session of the 2013/2014 Ready to Learn Program!

When: Saturday, September 14th, 2013 from 9:30am to 1pm

Where: 49th Street Elementary School: 750 E. 49th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90011 (near Vernon & Avalon)

What: Ready to Learn is a Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce Member Project. For more than five years, LA Junior Chamber of Commerce members have helped first grade students from low performing LAUSD Title 1 schools to improve their reading and English language abilities. Volunteers with the Ready to Learn program spend their Saturday mornings listening to first graders read to them and helping the students as needed. They also help the first graders with an art project related to their reading. Reading and language skills are essential for academic success and Ready to Learn helps children develop an enthusiasm for reading by making it fun.

Sign up today and make a positive impact on the futures of the children at 49th Street Elementary School! To register to volunteer, please fill out the Ready to Learn Volunteer Application prior to the session. To RSVP to volunteer contact Nancy Takata at: [email protected] or 213.680.8019.
