Review for Rsvp Of Montgomery County, Blue Bell, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I JOINED RSVP OVER 10 YEARS AGO AS A READING COACH FOR FIRST-GRADERS. I WAS PLACED IN A LOCAL SCHOOL AND HAD THE PRIVELEGE OF WORKING WITH ESPECIALLY WONDERFUL CHILDREN AND TEACHERS. THE OPPORTUNITY AFFORDED ME A ' BEHIND THE SCENES' PEEK AT THE SKILLS UTILIZED IN DELIVERY OF EDUCATION AS WELL AS A SHARED JOY OF READING THE WRITTEN WORD.
THE EXPERIENCE WAS SO REWARDING, THAT AS I HAD MORE TIME, I ALSO BECAME A MENTOR TO A 10 YEAR OLD GIRL THROUGH THE PROTEGE PROGRAM. THE GIRL HAD RECENTLY LOST HER CARE-GIVING GRANDMOTHER AND WAS FLOUNDERING IN SCHOOL AND ON THE STREETS. WE DEVELOPED A DEEP AND LOVING RELATIONSHIP OVER MANY YEARS. TODAY SHE IS MY FAMILY, A SISTER TO MY DAUGHTERS, A SOPHOMORE AT TEMPLE, AS WELL AS A WIFE AND A MOTHER TO MY 15 MONTH OLD GRANDSON.
I THANK RSVP FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP CHILDREN IN BOTH ARENAS. I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT I MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES AND FUTURES.

Role:  Volunteer & WORKED AS READING COACH/ WAS A MENTOR.
