For a child who struggles with reading, the benefits are many. Improved reading skills have been proven to raise academics across the board. Even classroom behavior and focus improve.
For the volunteer, the benefit is knowing your small time commitment will have a considerable impact on the well-being of a child as well as the enjoyment of the rewarding experience of spending time with a child on a joyful activity.
For the participating organization, the benefit is the ability to contribute to your local communities in a meaningful and measurable way, to provide an opportunity for employee engagement that results in greater employee satisfaction and retention, and to align with a respected non-profit for positive, socially-minded promotional opportunities.
