A literacy based program that pairs struggling readers from kindergarten through second grade with teen volunteers. They meet once a week to read together and do group activities.
Reading Buddies is designed to give children extra reading practice one-on-one with a teen mentor and make the reading experience fun. The teen volunteers develop responsibility, leadership and communication skills while they serve their community and make a difference in children’s lives. We will be celebrating reading by doing creative projects and programs, as well as providing some snacks and giving away prizes!
The program runs June 1 through July 28. Participants can choose to attend in June or July or both. We will have sessions on Monday afternoons and Tuesday evenings.
Registration is required. Applications are due May 11, 2020.
