LA's BEST provides a safe and supervised after school education, enrichment and recreation program for children ages 5 to 12 in Los Angeles. Serving communities that have the highest need and fewest resources, LA’s BEST provides students with help with homework, a learning activity that boosts core academic skills such as reading and math, something that’s new and just plain fun, and a nutritious snack.
Help a child become a proficient reader and foster a love of reading. We’re looking for volunteers, age 50 and older, to tutor K-3 students in small groups during after school hours. Volunteers receive ongoing training, mentorship, coaching and peer support as part of AARP foundation’s award winning Experience Corps program. To volunteer, click here.
