It’s National Volunteer Week!

National Volunteer WeekThis week is National Volunteer Week, and we want to thank all of the volunteers who make our programs possible. As a small non-profit with big goals, we rely on our many selfless supporters and the time they take to give back to the students who need it most.

From chaperoning field trips to helping students improve their writing, volunteers are an integral part of our mission to create readers for life. In the words of one student, who dedicated his story to the BtB writing mentors, “without them our stories wouldn’t have as much dialogue, detail and imagery.” We know how he feels – without volunteers, our programs wouldn’t have as much one-on-one engagement, or as many opportunities for growth, or such profound connections to the community.

Thank you, from all of us here at BtB.
