Monadnock RSVP received Volunteer NH’s 2019 Spirit of New Hampshire Volunteer Champion Award in the Nonprofit category for America Reads on Nov. 13 at the Capital Center for the Arts in Concord.

Now in its 21st year, America Reads has grown to 16 schools and 11 Pre-K programs. This year, 91 volunteers are working with teachers and staff to develop educational activities tailored to individual students to help them be ready to start school in terms of literacy development and to achieve their grade level of reading by the end of 3rd grade.

“We are grateful for the time and effort volunteers give to help our community’s children and our goal is to provide them with a high quality experience,” said Kathy Baird, program director of RSVP. 

The Spirit of New Hampshire Award is an annual recognition administered by Volunteer NH in collaboration with the Office of the Governor. The Volunteer Champion Award recognizes organizations that provide structure and support for volunteer efforts.

Monadnock RSVP engages more than 150 older adults in meaningful service opportunities at over 35 nonprofit and public organizations in the Monadnock Region. Monadnock RSVP is a program of Monadnock Family Services, a Monadnock United Way agency.
