Review for Literacy Advance of Houston, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

You know how, when you start to volunteer somewhere the organization can tend to overwhelm you ith requests for more and more of your time, adding responsibilities, and eventually burning you out? NOT SO with Literacy Advance! This is such an organized and professional group, and they are incredibly appreciative of even the slightest contribution. I'm continually amazed at the flexibility and support volunteers are afforded, but most of all, the enthusiasm and heart-felt thanks volunteers receive from the staff and students is very energizing. You don't need experience, you will learn what you need to know to get started during a fun and interactive new tutor workshop. And you won't be bogged down by artificial cirriculum, erroneous testing, or unmanageable classes. Classes are small, grouped by learner level, they occur when it's convenient for you, and are completely driven by the students' goals. I will continue volunteering here for as long as there are people who want to learn to become literate!
