Beyond Basics works with school aged children right in their own school, during the school day. Volunteers for our Reading Buddies program can work as often or as little as they wish. Opportunities to read to children (we provide the books and coordinate the children and the space in the school) for as little as one hour a week one time, one hour a week for several weeks or months, or more are available. No special skills are needed beyond the ability to read out loud with good pronunciation. A background check is required.
