Literacy Leads to Brighter Futures.
Everyone Deserves That Opportunity.
Every year, we give thousands of free books to foster care, homeless, and low-income teens throughout Los Angeles County. We not only teach literacy skills, we create the intrinsic motivation to read.
How you can help create brighter futures:
Donate to The Book Truck
If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us improve the futures of teens with low literacy, you can make a one-time OR a recurring donation through PayPal.
Volunteer at Literacy Events
Our teen literacy events are staffed almost exclusively by teen volunteers. If you have a teen (or a group of teens), who would be interested in volunteering with us, connect with us.
Apply for a Literacy Event
We visit and distribute books to teens at large events at Los Angeles, California area Title 1 schools and other youth organizations for underserved teens, especially foster youth.
