My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Baltimore Reads, Inc., Baltimore, MD, USA
Without a doubt, Baltimore Reads deserves five stars for their remarkable work as a non-profit, combatting illiteracy. This past semester, I participated in a service-learning course, partnered with Baltimore Reads. The Baltimore Reads' clients and staff members, warmed my heart with unbelievable dedication to the program from both sides of the spectrum. Judging from the positive tone, upbeat attitudes and overall enthusiasm from the staff, clearly, the staff at BRI is passionate about creating a supportive and comfortable environment in which their students will thrive. From the other perspective, I can only imagine how difficult it might be to continue one's education after having dropped out of school. Despite this hurdle, though, the Baltimore Reads clients continue to come to class, day after day, most notably, because they have been inspired to progress by such encouraging teachers.
This organization also goes above and beyond expectations by offering an abundance of extracurricular activities and services that help students succeed. BRI offers transitional services to help clients find jobs, students and staff work on computer literacy, a BRI book bank program promotes the joys of reading to children and adults and the Literacy Garden offers fresh produce and spreads awareness of health and nutrition. If it had not already been exhibited enough through the amazing kindness and commitment shown by the BRI staff, these supplementary programs prove that Baltimore Reads strives for more than GED certificates. Rather, they remain devoted to bettering the entire lives of their students. For their extraordinary work, Baltimore Reads warrants praise.
