KOREH L.A. Volunteer Program

KOREH L.A. is the largest children’s literacy volunteer program in Los Angeles.

Since 1999, KOREH L.A. has trained and placed over 18,000 volunteers as reading partners, reaching over 20,000 LAUSD students at over 150 Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) partner schools.

We train volunteer reading partners to work with LAUSD K-5th grade students to help enhance their reading skills and foster a love of reading. Volunteers undergo three hours of training with a literacy specialist, then work one-on-one for an hour per week for the school year with a student who has been identified by their teacher as a reluctant reader.

Our volunteers make a tangible difference in the lives of their students in schools all over Los Angeles, in the city, the valley, and the South Bay. Check out our partner schools below!

Pre-K KOREH

Pre-K KOREH is a volunteer program designed to expose preschool children (ages 3 – 5) to reading readiness activities that will help prepare them for kindergarten. The mission of Pre-K KOREH is to help these early learners develop a love for books while contributing to the growing emphasis placed on school readiness.

Pre-K KOREH trains volunteers to provide the essential one-on-one attention that enhances reading readiness in pre-school children. Volunteers are matched with children in LAUSD early education facilities for one hour per week.

The Esther Club

The Esther Club pairs at-risk girls with a mentor who focuses on literacy, female empowerment, self-esteem and individuality.

Family Literacy Nights

Family Literacy Nights is KOREH L.A.’s initiative to provide Los Angeles families with the tools and support they need to encourage literacy outside of the classroom.

According to education experts, involving parents in a child’s education is a predictor of academic success and achievement. Family Literacy Nights help to support the development of students’ literacy, giving them the tools to succeed both in and out of the classroom.
