Teaching a Child to Read

School on Wheels and Reading KingdomColby Devitt is the VP of Marketing for the Reading Kingdom. She is also passionate about community involvement and helping others by volunteering her time.

She volunteers with School on Wheels, a Los Angeles-based organization that brings the classroom to homeless kids via a giant van turned learning lab.

“I knew that I wanted my volunteer time to make a significant difference in the lives of those I was serving.  I had the best chance of doing this by spending my time with an organization that had a good track record, a clear mission, and which was run by good people I respected. School on Wheels, which started 18 years ago, fit those criteria.”

Devitt was recently interviewed by the website, Questions for Living, about her experience tutoring Victor, an 8-year-old homeless child in Los Angeles.
