    Will you please help us in maintaining and extending our Bag of Books program?

    The Bag of Books program currently caters to kindergarten classrooms in 17 schools across this valley! This means that over 1,600 young readers in 64 classrooms get a backpack filled with four new books each week. They return the books weekly only to get another four books the next week. Over the course of a school year they have the opportunity to read 130 different books, in their home, with their families. How great is that!  

    While the Bag of Books has been bringing in awesome results, we don't just want to stop at 64 classrooms. Will you consider making a contribution to help further develop children's literacy skills in SCV? Just $25 will buy one backpack filled with four books.  A $1,000 donation will supply an entire classroom!

    If you are interested in supporting our new Page Turners program, please contact Lety Ledezma at

    Thank you for being a part of this movement. By joining forces to give generously, we can make huge strides in literacy.

    Become a Read With Me! volunteer

    We are looking for volunteers to work with students in local elementary schools to improve their reading and comprehension skills.  As a Read With Me volunteer you will work with students one-on-one or in small groups to assist with pronunciation, comprehension and other skills needed for students to achieve educational success.  

    Teachers will work closely with you and be present in the classroom when you are there.  Read with Me volunteers are asked to commit to a set schedule of at least one hour each week for several months.  

    Volunteers will receive an orientation regarding policies along with information about their role and their assigned school.
