Volunteer Spotlight


Why did you decide to volunteer at The Literacy Alliance?
I was interested in helping others. I was also interested in utilizing my engineering background in some fashion outside of the work environment.

What has been the best part of your experience so far?
The most rewarding part is seeing a student graduate. Particularly those that struggled with school materials on top of the other things going on in the world around them.

“Sometimes by helping others you can end up helping yourself. ”

Why should others volunteer?
We can all use a little help. Sometimes by helping others you can end up helping yourself.

What advice would you give a new volunteer?
Listen. Be patient. There is no one right way to teach someone. You may have to try several approaches to solving a problem that a student may be stuck on
