Greetings dear supporters of Literacy Volunteers!
I am very happy to be introducing myself as your new Executive Director and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in the year ahead, and communicating frequently in a variety of ways. Being a part of the Literacy Volunteers team is an exciting opportunity for me and the past few weeks have been a total immersion into the mission and operations of this great organization.
It was clear to me from the start that Literacy Volunteers is blessed with a cadre of talented and dedicated human resources that have helped the organization move toward its goal of 100% literacy- including your Board of Directors and former Executive Director, Staff, Volunteers, Partners and Donors throughout our communities. The quality of the people involved and their desire to improve lives through the gift of reading is so impressive. I feel honored to be a part of it and commit to doing my absolute best to foster the continued growth and success of our programs in greater New Haven, Meriden, Wallingford and the Valley towns.
It’s been wonderful to speak with many of our students who express how happy and confident they feel having worked with our volunteer tutors and what a difference it has made for themselves and their families. Many have a long way to go toward their goals but their perseverance is an example for every one of us!
There is much work to do but it is truly meaningful work. There are so many ways that individuals, businesses and community organizations can help through volunteering, sponsoring, offering their time and resources in turn for a more literate and empowered society.
Thanks for all you have done for and with Literacy Volunteers. I look forward to a great future with you, working together to advance the cause of literacy.
