Synopsis - The Reading Buddies Program is a free program that pairs trained teen volunteers with younger students in grades K-6 for one-on-one shared reading. This program is designed to give each child not tutoring, but extra reading practice and the opportunity to share in a fun reading experience with a caring teen mentor. These buddies will take turns reading aloud, engage in interactive reading through discussion and varied reading activities.

Session runs January 20—March 10.
