We are proud to announce that 826 Boston's November 2011 Volunteer of the Month is Johnny Sadoff
Johnny has participated in volunteer led fundraisers such as the Write-A-Thon, tutored weekly during after-school and Saturday
tutoring, assisted in workshops such as hip-hop lyric writing, attended countless in-school projects and was a guest at our Books for Breakfast fundraiser. The real question is what hasn't Johnny done for 826 Boston?
Johnny says, "I volunteer at 826 Boston because it's poetry in motion. Every time I'm at 826 or an 826 production I'm continually amazed at the magical I've just stepped into. You always get the sense that something is happening or is about to happen. Your not quite sure what - but you're real excited to find out. "
Johnny was born in Washington, DC (the real DC) and came to Boston for graduate school in education. He is currently a program coordinator for Tutors for ALL
- a non profit organization that tutors students one-on-one in English and Math. When he isn't volunteering at 826, he loves to run, play chess and read. He hasn't decided what he wants to be when he grows up.
Thank you, Johnny, for all that you do! Thank you, Harvard Book Store
, for sponsoring our Volunteer of the Month program!
