Volunteer of the Week

Betsy Dain

Durham Literacy Center

Volunteer for 5 years

Rebecca Schaffer, a program associate at the center, says that Betsy’s “compassion and selflessness inspire everyone at the Durham Literacy Center. She is always willing to lend a hand, and she never fails to lead by example.” Betsy even visited a student in the hospital and helped him prepare to return home.

Twice a week, Betsy meets with beginning adult readers. She assists with volunteer recruitment, tutor training, in-service workshops and new-tutor observations. New tutors feel more confident with their abilities after spending time with Betsy. 

Thank you, Betsy Dain, for playing a crucial role in the services of the Durham Literacy Center and for going beyond the call of duty to fill any need!
