To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to know if you have any openings at Big Brothers Big Sisters. I would be willing to work on a volunteer basis to begin with. Hopefully, I will be able to make a difference at your facility.
For the last six-plus years, I have been the program director for the AmeriCorps Alachua County READS! Program. In that capacity, I have worked with and observed hundreds of students. I also recruited and trained tutors to work one-on-one with students in grades K-3. All of these students were reading below grade level, and, with one-half hour of tutoring per day, the majority of them improved their reading skills.
I have a diverse background, much of it in the business sector in the Daytona Beach area, and I always made a difference. I have encouraged those who I supervised to reach higher.
I am compassionate and caring, and I love children. I will be happy to provide you with references and would dearly like to have the chance to speak to you about my qualifications.
Thank you for taking the time to look over my resume and references.
