Review for Everybody Wins Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a reading volunteer, I read to "my" 4th grade student, Chris, each week of the school year during my lunch break. I have been reading to Chris for 2 years now. When I first had Chris read back to me, he would become a little apprehensive. To make reading enjoyable instead of a chore, I would get into character and alternate with Chris on the dialogue. On several occassions we would re-read sections because he thought they were so funny. I wish we could do more than once a week, but it still is enjoyable to see the development of a young person and have them learn to read for pleasure.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I participate as a volunteer reader. I am a Corporate Audit Manager and take my lunch break to visit my student for a reading session. I believe it is important for a young person to have as many positive role models as they can in their lives.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being a positive role model and helping in a child's development.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great volunteers who care alot for the children.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be able to reach more children.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
