BEYOND BASICS
November 19, 2012

I have spent the past two years as a tutor with Beyond Basics. Over the course of those two years, I have had the opportunity to work with approximately 50 students in the Read to Rise Program. In no time at all I fell in love with my job, and the organization. My mind is filled with countless faces and names of students whose lives were impacted by Beyond Basics. After seeing firsthand the remarkable progress in each student's literacy levels, it became clear to me that this organization was one I wanted to commit to long term. After graduating in April of 2012, I decided to dive in full time and currently serve as the Reading Director. The sheer volume of students we are reaching and helping as an organization is increasing exponentially each year. I can honestly say that in my three years with Beyond Basics, I have never left at the end of the day feeling like that day's work didn't matter. I would encourage anybody interested in getting involved with a Non-Profit, or enriching the lives of children, to consider Beyond Basics as the avenue through which to do so.
