Beyond Basics has been a great partner. We are delighted with the staff!
I volunteer at a DPS school that Beyond Basics services. I cannot say enough about their programs nor the people who work for them.
They use an excellent reading program to tutor the children. The one on one tutor/student relationship is a huge factor in their success.
I could go on and on. tutoring may be the major piece of their work but their additional programs build up literacy as well. Five plus stars!
Beyond Basics is a wonderful organization with the long-term interests of the future of our country in mind. Education is the key to unlocking our potential and I believe Beyond Basics is the beginning to opening that door of potential. Their work is not just important it is a necessity. Its members are passionate, devoted and knowledgable about educational issues and how to solve them. A great organization.
I've seen so much growth and outreach in the five years I've known Beyond Basics and its employees. The students and their families truly have life-changing experiences thanks to Beyond Basics. I've heard countless testimonies of adults being able to learn how to read their bible, high school students transitioning from high school at-risk to their college's Dean's List, and so much more. I'm constantly inspired by the people who work at Beyond Basics, who put the kids first and are always trying to expand their program's outreach.
I had an opportunity to visit two schools that are part of Beyond Basics program, Burton and Thurkle. The delight in the children's eyes when the volunteers are working with them was enough to sell me on the benefit this program offers to children in the lowest performing schools in Detroit. Teachers in the schools are so thankful to have Beyond Basics in their schools and the students are eager to learn and attend the teaching programs. Students are proud of their accomplishments! Beyond Basics has given them skills to be successful in all areas of their lives.
Beyond Basis is an amazing organization that is truly dedicated to teaching kids how to read. They are a life-changing non-profit that cares about each and every child they help. Beyond Basics is incredibly inspiring and continues to make positive differences in many kid's lives.
Beyond Basics is a wonderful organization that is lead by truly caring people that want to make a positive difference in the world. They have indeed done this with all of the children they have helped and I have faith that they will continue to do so for many years to come!
