My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Sit Stay Read Inc, Chicago, IL, USA
This is my second year as a SitStayRead volunteer. I have volunteered as a book buddy and with my dog as a dog team. Both experiences have been amazing. All of the staff and other volunteers I have met are warm/friendly, and excited about the program. It's been a really uplifting experience.
The program itself (curriculum) is also amazing. I have never seen a class full of kids so quiet and enraptured by anything - let alone someone reading to them. I have personally seen kids who started out the 1st grade program being unable to read or write a full sentence - by the end they are understanding how to write a paragraph.
If you are looking for a truly rewarding opportunity - one you will walk away from each session with a smile and sense of real accomplishment - then SitStayRead is for you.
