Review for EVERYBODY WINS-IOWA INC, Des Moines, IA, USA
I started mentoring with Every Wins! Iowa a little over a year ago, and it's just been a joy. It's fun to get out in the community and share my love of reading with so many young students. Some are just learning to read and love having books read to them. Others are good little readers but really enjoy the encouragement and support of a mentor. Whether I'm reading in a 6-week summer program or spending a half hour or so with a student each week during the school year, I know I'm guaranteed to make a new little friend that will happily spend some time with me wrapped up in a good book. As an added bonus, the program is flexible and accommodates small interruptions from things like appointments and vacations, and the staff is always accessible.
