Why is Read Ahead’s work so important?
Reading for pleasure plays a part in a child's progress in school. This program provides children with the resources to develop academically while building relationships with a mentor, which will leave a lasting impression, on a child, for life.
Why are you passionate about Read Ahead?
Pairing my love for reading and my love for children allows me to experience the best of both worlds with Read Ahead. Being apart of an organization that is just as excited, as I am, about nurturing and giving children the opportunity to express themselves and learn brings me great joy.
What has been the most rewarding part of volunteering?
Being able to play a small role in making a difference in my mentee's life through our reading sessions.
