Reading to Kids is a charitable organization that sponsors monthly reading clubs at inner-city elementary schools with low literacy rates in Los Angeles, CA. The organization provides books and volunteers who read to the children; after each reading club the books are donated to the schools' libraries, and the children receive a reading-related prize for attending. Reading to Kids also provides training for the parents of the participating children, offering guidance on how to encourage their children to read more at home.
