Would you recommend Arlington Public Library - Arlington Reads?

by Ryan G. (November 7, 2010)
Not only is the current coordinator of the program very thorough and always willing to help, but she also makes an effort to stay in regular contact with the volunteers. As far as the opportunity itself goes, I've really enjoyed helping an immigrant with their English skills. Volunteering, in my opinion, shouldn't be about what you can get from the experience - rather it should truly be about helping out your fellow human beings - but let's face it. As a volunteer you do receive gratification in the form of seeing your efforts pay off, and Arlington Reads is a bullseye in this respect. The best part of this opportunity is that Arlington Reads offers flexible schedules and formats for the volunteer. You want to teach a small class? They got you covered. You want to be a one-on-one tutor? They can get you set up with that too. I know they're needing volunteers like crazy right now. There's a substantial list of students waiting to be matched with teachers, so I encourage you to inquire.

I believe we all have a gift to offer and by sharing that gift you are adding so much more to someone else life that is so deserving of that. I would recommend your organization, because you are there to help add that gift of reward!
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
