LA Reads

In 2017, to help address the literacy crisis in Los Angeles and get children excited about reading, the Los Angeles Dodgers partnered with the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation to launch LA Reads, a literacy campaign that includes a literacy challenge, "Dodgers Reading Champions." LA Reads and Dodgers Reading Champions are designed to motivate youth to read and help them build a lifelong love of reading.

In its first year Dodgers Reading Champions reached 2,400 students, representing 585 schools, who read more than 600,000 minutes. 
In 2018, the Dodgers and Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation challenge Los Angeles County students to read 1,000,000 minutes. Dodgers Reading Champions is open for registration and will take place from March 2018 - August 2018.  

Children can track the time they spend reading every day online and win cool incentives. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers will continue to host reading events throughout the community at local schools, libraries and non-profit partners throughout the school year as a part of the LA Reads campaign.
