Bridges Tutor Lemonade Stand Volunteer

I think volunteering is one of the most important things someone can do for their community. I think Bridges to Independence is such a critical organization for our community, and I love the idea of being part of the mission. I currently tutor a youth from the program once a week. Since we started together in September, his reading has improved, but more importantly, his confidence in reading has improved! I have seen such great progress and am so happy to be part of his life and watch him flourish. I’ve become more than a tutor, but a role model for him. I am so proud to be part of an organization who sees the value and importance in education, as it impacts everything we do. He has taught me so much about myself since September, and I truly consider it a privilege to be involved in such an intimate part of his life.
