Book Buddy

Our Book Buddy volunteers work with small groups of students on reading and writing activities, as dictated in the SitStayRead curriculum, during an hour-long program, once a week for 6-8 weeks.

Our Book Buddies are instrumental in helping our students achieve literacy greatness! They help K-3rd graders increase their reading and writing skills, and make it fun!

We go into CPS schools that are 90% or more low-income with 60% or more of third graders reading below grade-level. Our partner schools have limited access to resources, which is why our program is focused on those locations! Our volunteers get a chance to see new parts of their community that they may have never seen before, all while getting to help some awesome students!
