Not only do I volunteer, I donate and help recruit/advertise as well. I started about 4 or 5 yrs. ago with tutoring ESL after trying some other local language schools. I just didn't find the same vibe, training & learner participation that I have with Washtenaw Literacy. Despite the great training they put me through, I also applaud how they run the nonprofit with such a small paid staff. They are very eager to be there for us, and really appreciate what our volunteers do to help to keep us going! The often have tutor socials, workshops, picnics, a recognition ceremony, a mentor program (which I'm now a part of!) and of course wonderful resources to use with our learners! Our fundraisers are exciting and give volunteers and learners the opportunity to really delve into the operation and gain experience - and they're fun! They deserve any and all recognition possible!
