An hour every other week I spend an hour helping 1st graders read. It is part of a program that is supported by my company and it helps local schools with the kid’s motivation. Many kids from these schools do not read at home or are not encouraged by adults (besides their teachers) to read. The program centers on making reading a fun thing and not just a school thing. I am not posting here to get a (great job Logtar) or anything like that… but to point out a cool little perk that we got thanks to this program.
They host a dinner every year for all the volunteers and I get to participate 🙂
