Literacy Advance of Houston
November 6, 2012

I have volunteered with many different organizations and Literacy Advance is by far the best! For the past three years, I have been tutoring ESL classes and leading trainings for new tutors. Literacy Advance classes are free to students. Because of this, they are so appreciative and grateful to the tutors. It is an incredibly rewarding experience to see them improve as they learn new vocabulary and gain confidence in English. What makes Literacy Advance exceptionally, though, is the support the volunteers receive from the staff. From the fantastic training session to the everyday communications and announcements, the staff ensures that volunteers are equipped to be great tutors, even if it is their first time in a tutoring role. I highly recommend Literacy Advance. Volunteering with them is a wonderful experience. Seeing a student get a new job or get their driver's license because of the English skills they have gained in your class is unforgettable!
