The wonderful volunteers at Let’s Read are patient, nurturing, and dedicated individuals who love working with children and giving back to the community. They come from diverse backgrounds and contribute by bringing their own unique passions to the program. We are always looking for enthusiastic new tutors to join us on Saturday mornings!
Because we encourage mentoring relationships between our tutors and kids, we ask that volunteers be able to attend multiple meetings during a particular session. (We understand, of course, that scheduling conflicts arise; we just want to maintain as much continuity for the kids as possible.)
New volunteers will be asked to submit for a background check, which can take 1-2 weeks to process. (Details can be found on the L.A. Works website.) Once approved, volunteers should arrive fifteen minutes early to their first session for a brief orientation. All volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
Join the Team!
