FIND OUT WHY KAYE ENJOYS BEING A PART OF STARS MENTORING PROJECT:
Why did you decide to volunteer with STARS?
I have always loved reading. I once read that if you learn to love reading, you will never be lonely, and I have found that to be true in my own life. When I heard what was happening in the kids at Provident Heights through STARS, I knew I wanted to be a part.
What is your favorite part about serving?
I enjoy being a Book Club Mentor because I know these kids will be successful in life if they learn to read. It is such a joy getting to know them, sharing fun stories with them and seeing them use their imagination as they improve in their reading.
Do you have a testimony to share from your time serving?
I have been serving since 2013, and it is always great to develop relationships that extend beyond our 30-minutes a week. I love seeing the kids while I am out and about in Waco. I also still keep up with a girl who is now 15 and used to be in one of my groups.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
Thirty minutes once or twice a week is time well spent with these kids, I promise!
