Review for Literacy Partners, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first connected with Literacy Partners almost two years ago while looking for a volunteer opportunity that was long-term and one in which I could really see the results of mine and the group's efforts. My time volunteering with Literacy Partners has been incredible. I am really inspired by how hard the students work, and getting to know them and their personal backstores has been an eye-opening experience. I feel very supported by my co-tutor and by the people in the main office. I think everyone involved with the organization has their hearts and minds in the same place and are really working toward a common goal about which we are all incredibly passionate. I like that volunteering with Literacy Partners is not a one-off thing, but a long-term commitment that affords me the opportunity to really get to know students, staff, and tutors and to feel like I'm really a part of making a difference.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing my students' test scores improve and seeing some of them move up to a higher level class. Even with those students who have remained in my class, I see their confidence increasing and their motivation is continuous.
