Ready to Learn is a Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce Member Project. Over the past 5+ years, LA Junior Chamber members have helped first grade students from underserved LAUSD Title 1 schools improve their reading and English language abilities. We believe, and educators agree, that reading is the most important skill needed by students to ensure academic success, and ultimately, the completion of high school.

If the kids from the program attend every session in the school year, they will be rewarded with a trip to Disneyland (that's 55 first graders!) Most of these kids have never been to Disneyland due to many reasons including financial. For many of the students, this will be their first trip to Disneyland!
HELP US IMPROVE THEIR READING SKILLS AND TAKE THEM TO DISNEYLAND!
