As a part of Reading Corps, you really get the satisfaction of knowing you made a kid’s day.
Don Olson – Douglas Elementary
Don has always believed that those who are able should try to help others – especially the young people who are just starting out. He explains that Reading Corps puts him in the perfect position to do just that. As a tutor, he not only helps boost literacy skills, but he builds up confidence as well.
When Don walks into a students’ classroom to pull them out for a tutoring session, they smile and perk up as soon as they see him. Reading Corps is a part of the day that the students look forward to. Don says that is the most gratifying part of service.
