Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Reading to Kids is delighted to welcome Rachel Zwass as our new Program Coordinator! 

Rachel graduated from UCLA this past June with a degree in Sociology.  While at UCLA, Rachel was the president of the Student Coalition for Marriage Equality.  As president, Rachel managed a six-person board and volunteer group in planning and executing educational events and rallies for the UCLA community.

Some of you may already know Rachel as a volunteer!  Rachel has volunteered as a reader, GLC, and Training Coordinator since November 2007.  She also interned with Reading to Kids during the fall of 2007, helping with reading club preparations and coordinating College Spirit Day activities.  Needless to say, her volunteer recruitment and program management skills fit perfectly with what we do at Reading to Kids.  Rachel can be reached at Rachel.Zwass@readingtokids.org. 

Welcome, Rachel!
