Review for CAREER GUIDANCE INSTITUTE, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with the Albuquerque Reads, Atrisco, program for 11 years (since I retired). It is the most rewarding thing I have done since retiring. It is rewarding for the students, but also for the volunteers. Each year I have seen the children's growth in their abilities. I have worked with physically handicapped, children with learning disabilities, and ESL children, and each and every one has progressed by the end of kindergarten. The leaders these past few years, Gayle and Marcia, are terrific and keep the volunteers informed every week via email. Great and very effective program. It is unfortunate that it is not at all schools, or at least all schools in lower socio-economic areas. I will volunteer with this program as long as I am able. Thank you. Veronica Monthan
