Kids Reading to Succeed is a literacy program whose mission is to empower at-risk youth through reading and education. As volunteers, we will be reading with kids at their Saturday morning program in Pasadena. KRS children are in elementary school, grades 1 - 5. After a morning of reading, we will also help the kids through an interactive learning activity. Limited spots, so sign up early!
