Reading Buddies

Children in grades 2-4 who could benefit from a little support and guidance with their reading will be paired with a trained teen Reading Buddy volunteer to read together. The goal is to help the young buddy improve their confidence and develop a positive attitude toward reading. The Summer Reading Buddies program is currently full. Please watch this page for future opportunities.
