Reading Buddies is a twice-weekly program that allows elementary students to work one-on-one with a trained, supportive mentor to help boost reading skills such as fluency and comprehension, and well as boost reading confidence. During each session, a Big Buddy and a Little Buddy pair read together in 30-minute segments. This allows each volunteer mentor to work with two students over the course of the academic year. The Big Buddy’s job is to be a coach and role model whose love of books is contagious — and maybe even life-changing — for the Little Buddy.
