Review for Experience Corps Bay Area, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Experience Corps in San Francisco is one of the best run volunteer organizations for what it has identified as an at-risk group requiring the sharing of knowledge through a gentle and firm approach: in helping young pupils up to grade 3 to exercise reading skills that would allow them to functional well and competitively in an educational environment. The corps takes a professional approach to training its volunteers, and its staff is highly supportive and knowledgeable. I have been with the corps for a relatively short time (less than a year) and have found that it has an excellent relationship with the public schools that it serves. I've found the work very gratifying - not all problems are solvable in the short term, but being in a position to provide a solution does have its benefits from time to time - a passage well-read, a compliment for a job well done, a smile on a child's face.
