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 3 through July 30. Participants can choose to attend in June or July or both. We will have sessions on Monday afternoons and Tuesday evenings.
