My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Reading Connection, Inc., Arlington, VA, USA
Just celebrated my two-year anniversary volunteering with the Reading Connection. It's been a fantastic experience reading to kids in conjunction with a local housing agency. TRC has identified dedicated and responsible site leaders for the location at which I volunteer. TRC's Volunteer Central has also been great in terms of helping to plan the Read Aloud sessions. It's a webportal through which you can access information about both prior and upcoming Read Alouds. You can also search for reading roadmaps and past Read Aloud themes to get ideas about books and activities.
TRC's staff has been supportive and communicative, and the time commitment has also been reasonable. I volunteer roughly once a month (but may, in the future, volunteer more frequently) and also spend some time preparing for each Read Aloud, but as mentioned above, TRC has provided tools to make the preparation a lot easier. All in all, just a great experience.
