    Pros

    The BELL Program provided students across the Charlotte region with opportunities to grow their reading skills in a fun and engaging way. Fun was infused throughout program activities!

    Curriculum materials were not aligned to the instructional needs of all students. This made planning a bit challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring a Literacy Specialist who can assist with instructional decisions around selecting curriculum materials and supplementary resources that are matched to the needs of the students served.

    Pros

    BELL is an incredibly mission-driven organization. Our team is committed to excellence in our work because we know that it directly affects BELL’s ability to serve thousands of scholars in quality programs across the country.

    In return, BELL as an organization truly values its employees. Full-time employees are offered competitive benefits, the organization celebrates its employees’ birthdays and anniversaries at monthly celebrations, employees are given professional development stipends each year, and more.

    Cons

    Our headquarters is located in Dorchester, MA, but we also have regional offices across the country. In my role, I only see folks from other offices about once a year, so there is somewhat of a disconnect for me.
