About this event

Register HERE:

Reading Buddies is a free, out-of-school literacy development program that utilizes trained volunteers to provide individualized reading support sessions for enrolled participants. Participant decoding skills are assessed at the beginning of the program cycle and prescribed lesson plans are developed to address demonstrated student skill deficits. In addition, each session contains a shared reading component to apply new reading skills as well as provide a positive shared reading experience for both student and volunteer.

Reading Buddies is offered to children who are in first and second grades for Fall 2024. Exceptions may be made for 3rd graders demonstrating a high need for decoding skills instruction. These 45 minute sessions are held twice a week and supervised by RRSC site facilitators.
