When Jodi met Gerald*, her Mile High United Way Power Lunch reading buddy, he was the new kid in his class. It wasn’t his first time with that experience: the second grader was already attending his third elementary school.
The adult volunteer and the young student quickly found that they had a lot in common, and a lot to talk about. Jodi impressed Gerald with her knowledge of English Premier League soccer and Star Wars. Gerald wanted to know everything about his new friend – which struck Jodi as only fair.
