Review for Everybody Wins! USA, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

During the time I was organizing The America Reads Challenge I organized the U. S. Department of Education's partnership with Everybody Wins! for two years and served as a volunteer myself. I also periodically read with Senators Kennedy and Jeffords and their students. I watched this program light a fire in children's eyes regarding that tough subject called "reading"...it became exciting and they were eager each week after a while to show me how they were reading so much better and also understood what they were reading! I now serve as the President of Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and work in collaboration with Everybody Wins; some RIF staff serve as Everybody Wins volunteers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Watching the children become excited about reading!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and becoming advocates for children's literacy.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve many more children who need this extra boost in order to build a solid literacy skills base.

Ways to make it better...

I could have given the children books to own.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Resources for expansion.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
