Better Basics looking for volunteers

From staff reports

BIRMINGHAM — Better Basics is seeking volunteers to help at-risk children develop a love of reading.

Volunteers are needed during the school day to tutor struggling readers or to read to students and reward their reading achievements with prizes provided by Better Basics. Additional volunteers are needed to provide homework help and enrichment support for children in Better Basics’ after-school program. 

“Helping an at-risk child who needs extra support is so rewarding,” said Better Basics Volunteer Coordinator Kathleen Drake. “Volunteers routinely tell me that they get much more out of volunteering than they give. Making a difference in the life of a child is an investment in our future.”
