Volunteer USA is an impressive,well organized nonprofit making a difference in the lives of elementary children struggling with reading/ reading below grade level with its Teen Trendsetters Reading Mentors program. Hundreds of high schools provide volunteers to serve as reading mentors - meaning these teen volunteers not only provide valuable tutoring they benefit by experiencing the joy and satisfaction of being a volunteer and giving back to one's community (a wonderful starting point for potentially a lifetime of volunteer work).

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the teens who serve as volunteers. So much so that I have children who are almost old enough to participate and plan to do so!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the connection between the teen and their student. Both benefit on tremendous levels.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

"movers and shakers!" They are polished professionals that know how to get things done and are a pleasure to interact with on any issue!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the elemtary education world - as well as the high school teen world all while making a positive impact on the future!!!!!!!!!
