What Is Reading Buddies?
Reading Buddies is a fun way to earn hours! Work one-on-one with K-5 students to improve reading comprehension. Reading Buddies is designed to give kids in grades K-5 extra reading practice one-on-one, or in a group setting, with a Teen Buddy. Each week, a child will be paired up with a Teen Buddy during a 45-minute session which includes 30 minutes of reading followed by 15 minutes of playing word-related games. Teen Buddies become role models and help teach children the importance and enjoyment of becoming lifelong readers
The Wellington Branch sessions begins on Thursday, January 12th and runs through April 27th. Teens will receive one hour of volunteer service weekly on Thursdays and volunteer from 5:15-6:15 p.m.
