I am a former student at High Point Reading Connection. Three years ago, my friend introduced me to the High Point Library Reading Connection Office. From impossible to read any long sentences until finished six whole books. Also, received my GED diploma. Staffs and all the volunteer teachers, they are nice and kind. Now, I am really happy my first volunteer job starts Reading Connection. August 16's student and tutor celebration was a wonderful event. That day, my husband and I delighted to see my slide show projected on a screen. I am very glad and pleasure to be a volunteer.

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.
