I knew my son was having a hard time in reading. As a single parent, I struggle with my work schedule and helping my child’s schooling. The San Antonio Youth Literacy volunteer at my son’s school helped me give confidence to my son and he is no longer afraid to read with his friends in class. I sincerely thank the volunteers, the people that donate funds and all the other sponsors of SAYL. Thank you.

I love reading with elementary kids and helping them grow out of their shyness and gain confidence in their ability to read well in a classroom. It has impacted my own life by enriching my connection with my community and giving me a chance to give-back. SAYL Rocks!

I volunteer at Dan Cook Elementary helping 2 elementary students because I love reading and want to share that passion and importance with our youth. I understand that the ability to read can help these children reach their future goals in life.

My success story is me. I don’t have children and this program had given me the confidence to interact with, enjoy, and help such wonderful kids. Every student I have been assigned to is completely different- and it’s fun to let go, adapt, and meet them where they’re at. And I think I’ve helped them too
