Did not have the volunteer experience initially described.

My experience with Reading Connections and working under Kyri Murdough was wonderful! Kyri Murdough is very supportive of her volunteers as well as making sure the experience is very enjoyable for all involved.

I enjoyed volunteering at Reading Connections. I volunteered several days over the course of a couple years and found the work to be rewarding. I was typically involved in the receptionist position, and I found that the nature of this work meant that the reception position required many different skills. This non-profit organization has many different projects going on at the same time, and every person that works there has a full schedule. They are exceptionally busy and have served this community well for many years, and their records prove it.

I found this organization through this website and volunteered. I attended all training sessions and filled out all paperwork. Despite having a waiting list of over 80 people and no more than 10 new tutors, I was never matched with anyone. I found this to be a huge waste of my time. I question the competence and motives of this organization. Due to this experience, I am no longer interested in volunteering with any organization.
