By becoming a Book Buddy with LA’s BEST – AARP Foundation Experience Corps, you can help increase the probability of a 1st – 3rd grade student read at grade level, which leads to a greater chance of them graduating from high school. We are an after school enrichment program serving elementary aged children in the city of Los Angeles. We are bringing the downtown LA and Valley area a fun and exciting program that will unite adults and children in a unique opportunity. We are looking for adults 50+ who would like to change a child’s life by supporting them through literacy mentorship. Volunteers will have the opportunity to play reading games with primary grade students on a weekly basis to boost their literary skills.
