Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We assist in educating public school children through reading and writing programs and cultural enrichment. We believe in the importance of education in the achievement of dreams, in each child's ability to succeed, in building bridges between city and suburb, rich and poor, academia, government and business, and in helping to solve society's problem one child at a time.
Our programs take place during the school day in the schools where Beyond Basics is active. We run publishing centers where we produce hard-cover versions of the children's stories. We run reading programs that consist of one-on-one tutoring with the goal of getting children back into the classroom competing at grade level, reading enrichment programs in the form of read-alouds and book clubs. We also offer art and cultural enrichment experiences because we know that these are the programs that are often cut in cash strapped districts. We have collaborations with area universities and make use of their service learning philosophy.
