Review for EVERYBODY WINS-IOWA INC, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Spending time reading and bonding with my buddy has been the most rewarding experience I've had in a long time. It's easy to see progress in my student, without having to have "expertise" in teaching reading skills - just a genuine love for reading and helping children in need. It's also an easy time commitment - just one lunch break per week.

Review for EVERYBODY WINS-IOWA INC, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Everybody Wins! Iowa has to be the easiest and most rewarding way to give back to your community. It only takes one hour reading with your child each week to see a noticeable difference in their reading levels, confidence, and overall well-being. My reading buddy looks forward to updating me on his week and what's going on in school. That has led us to forging a partner reading experience, where we take turns reading out loud instead of just me doing all the talking. I know that means this mentorship has had an impact on him -- and of course, it has had an impact on me, too!
