Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies is a free, award-winning reading enrichment program that pairs 1st-3rd graders with volunteers in
7th-12th grades. Buddies meet once a week to read together one-on-one, play literacy games, and do group activities.
At the end of the term, the Buddies present a group project to their families.

Reading Buddies sessions take place three times a year:
  • Winter-Spring Term January-April
  • Summer Term June-August; includes a Writing Buddies program for rising 4th-7th graders 
  • Fall Term September-November
Participants must reapply for each session. For specific dates and times of each session, see the Big Buddies or Little Buddies brochures.

Reading Buddies gives kids, the Little Buddies, extra reading practice with a caring, creative teen mentor (the Big Buddy), in a fun, low-stress environment.
