Review for Westchester Jewish Community Services, Inc., White Plains, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering as a tutor at the Mount Vernon New York Edward Williams Elementary School Afterschool Advantage program which is a WJCS sponsored program. The program is invaluable to the school community. I am involved as a member of Westchester Reform Temple which supports the program with many adult and student volunteers. As an experienced teacher I am able to tutor students on their school work and give very much needed help. The relationships that I have formed with the students are extremely gratifying. They are so appreciative of the help. They have told me that the attention that the tutors give them makes them feel special. An impressive group of high school student have organized their peer group into a high school club. They take their responsibility seriously and come in strong numbers to tutor the children in the program and to work on special projects with them. This is a win win situation - the children in the after school program get invaluable help and the high school students experience the satisfaction of knowing that they have done an amazing job in giving to those who are in need.
