How long have you been volunteering?

Over the past twenty years, off and on.

Why did you decide to volunteer at The Literacy Alliance?

I’ve lived outside the US for long stretches of time. I appreciate how hard it is to fit into a new culture, especially if you haven’t mastered the language. Helping the brave souls who make the journey here to improve their status in life is a privilege. The Literacy Alliance provides a fundamental leg up for men and women of all ages and all backgrounds,

What has been the best part of your experience so far?

Getting to know the students, especially their resilience and commitment to their education.

Why should others volunteer?

Most of us remember someone who made a difference to us when we were young and trying to figure out what we wanted to do with our life. We can be that person for others and pass along our skills, knowledge, and experience. Even if it’s only a few hours here and there. Every little bit helps to improve someone’s life, family, and community.

What would you tell others who are considering volunteering?
Find an opportunity that aligns with your likes and skills. Interview the organization’s leaders to see if it’s a personal fit. If at first you don’t succeed, there will always be other opportunities to volunteer

I want to prove to my wife and daughter that their husband and dad can complete this without giving up. If I can do it years after leaving school, so could any of you.

Although it might seem impossible, you must keep pushing, or you’ll never really accomplish anything. I know many people hate high school...
