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

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience being a volunteer with Experience Corps Bay Area has been wonderful and very fulfilling. The organization is truly dedicated to helping small children, kindergardeners through 3 graders, learn the importance of being strong readers to help aid in the rest of their education.

In my experience, matching 50+ aged people with these small readers has been a great experience for not only the children, but for the adults.

Helping a few 7 and 8 years olds succeed in advancing their reading skills, the notion of "really helping" came to fruition when the last day of school came to pass this school year. I had equipped one of my readers with a few books for him to read during the summer. Waiting with him for his Mom to pick him up, I told him, I didn't want him to forget his book bag (I had visited the Lost and Found with this child too often during the year!) . He looked at me and said, "Ms. --------, I would never forget my backpack; practically my whole life is in that bag!"
I was satisfied.

I am now looking forward to the next school year and more 2nd grade readers.
