为学生的茁壮成长提供额外助力

KS&R 总裁兼书之友志愿者迈克-纳什(Mike Nash)分享了他如何在短短几个月的志愿服务后就看到了书之友的积极影响。

在 KS&R,我们从一开始就支持 “图书巴迪”。 我自己的三个女儿都在锡拉丘兹市学校就读,因此我很容易认识到,要想在学习的最初几年取得成功,需要额外的帮助和支持。 在参与 “书之友 “计划的几个月内,我们很容易就看到了这项计划的积极影响。 为孩子们提供额外的阅读机会是一项相对 “简单 “的任务,它能巩固孩子们每天所学的知识,并为未来的阅读成功建立信心。

如今,这么多年过去了,我们可以切实衡量出 “书之友 “投资所带来的积极影响。 学习水平阅读与未来学业/个人成功之间的相关性是很难争论的。 许多研究都验证了这一事实。 一旦学生的成绩下滑,就很难再回到原来的水平。 书之友 “为学生提供了额外的助力,帮助他们在幼年时期茁壮成长,并为他们未来的成功保驾护航。

虽然对这些年轻学生的影响是首要目标,但我们也可以看到每周花一小时与这些学生一起工作的志愿者所产生的积极影响。 看到他们每周都有进步,看到他们兴奋的样子,真是令人惊叹。 参与这种改进所带来的满足感是难以比拟的。

我感谢组织者和志愿者,是他们让 “书之友 “活动取得如此成功。 我鼓励社区中的任何人考虑每周拿出一小时来支持这项事业,你一定不会后悔的。
