My 13 year old daughter was a volunteer for the Read Program this past summer! She was so excited about helping the other children read.   The more she helped the others, the more she found herself reading. She told me that she enjoyed helping the kids with their reading each day.  The Read program not only created a place for learning, but a nurturing environment where the kids where taught about building character and received meals each day.  This helped my daughter keep a routine through the summer and helped her as well as the other children feel more confident in their reading skills.  She had done much better in school this year especially with her reading and will be volunteering for the Read program again this year! Thank you so much for bringing the Reading Program to our community!
