Would you recommend Family Service of RI- Providence Children's Initiative Dept.?

This is a really cool way to volunteer and make a difference in the community without a huge time commitment. The kids are great, and most know the routine already. You show up and sign in to the school, get a partner and then pick up each child on the determined route. You make a difference by ensuring children attend school and keep parents accountable to taking them to each stop. Also, I think if you sign up for 4 spots (either an hour in the morning or an hour in the afternoon) they pay you! It was really just an hour of fun with kids, knowing I helped a good cause and I could volunteer to do more if I wanted to. Flexible program, great for volunteers :)
