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 has changed the life of a child. And, of course, there’s simply the fun of being with children and reading and discussing stories.
For the participating organization, sharing a commitment to a cause—and one that involves kids—is uplifting and inspiring, tightening the feel-good bonds of teamwork.
