BEYOND BASICS
November 19, 2012

I was inspired to help children in Detroit Public Schools learn how to read and comprehend what they are reading about and I am so amazed by how much it can help this great city of Detroit. I began volunteering at Thirkell Elementary School and it has been a wonderful experience helping 3rd graders learn to read, reading to Kindergarten and 1st grade kids and feeling assured that these kids will have a greater opportunity in life to continue reading and then, help their children and grand children. Beyond Basics is the best volunteer program I found that truly helps kids learn the tools that will inspire them to continue to learn, have fun reading books about near and far away places and laugh with me as we explore new worlds and bond together as a community. I am grateful to Beyond Basics and Chrysler for giving me the opportunity to help grow this awesome nonprofit. Please consider Beyond Basics for your personal contribution to truly helping our Detroit kids grow and prosper in the 21st century.
