My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Reading Connection, Inc., Arlington, VA, USA
I am a senior executive with The Boeing Company, and through a pilot program called Skills Based Volunteering, I was matched with The Reading Connection to assist them in creating their first for-fee business model using an opportunity with Arlington County Public Schools. It was my first experience volunteering with a non-profit and I was extremely impressed. The passion with which the entire team delivers their mission is inspirational, but what impressed me most was the acumen the team showed in taking on the for-fee concepts quickly and readily applying them to further advance the TRC vision. This team never waivered from connecting all thought processes back to the community they serve to deliver the highest impact possible while demonstrating the deepest sense of responsibility as the stewards of the contributed resources. I have continued to work with TRC beyond the Boeing program, and feel privileged to do so.
