Experience at Reading Partners
Senior AmeriCorps Site Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 12, 2017
Generally, I had a good experience at Reading Partners. The culture was a positive one that encouraged teamwork, resourcefulness, ability to take on any challenges, and a sense of connection with all coworkers due to Reading Partners' strong values. There is little room for growth within the non-profit, which led me to leave after 2 years of working there. One also has to be willing to work for little pay, which says a lot about the strength and importance of the mission to bridge the literacy gap in the United States within low-income communities.

VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 1, 2017
It's great to work with very intelligent, creative, service minded people. It's a small team delivering a big program, so be prepared to work independently and take on many different roles. It was founded in the bay area and has a very "start-up" culture. Be flexible. Regional operations are often very spread out, so there is a lot of travel involved, plus plenty of telecommunicating and working alone. Management is down to earth and they regularly participate as volunteers, so they stay connected to the work at the ground floor. Great place to work if you love children.

Precarious Fun Fast Growing Non-Priofit
Office Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Oakland, CAMay 9, 2015
A typical day is spend answering general office and IT questions while managing office facilities and acting as a liaison with the property managers. Working to improve child literacy rates is the mission thus stimulating a culture that is fun, energetic, and youthful. Colleagues are smart, driven and compassionate. Challenges for a growing non-profit is developing business operations systems and training employees and guiding them through transition periods.
Pros
Fun Youthful Culture
Cons
Fluctuating Managment

Site Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Bronx, NYDecember 12, 2014
I was able to fulfill my passion of helping others. Also I enjoyed working with the community. I was responsible for spear-heading the opening of a new site, which showed to be challenging at times. However I was able to overcome those challenges and the site was a success.
