About

Do you love to read? Would you like to help children learn to love reading too? Book Buddies gives adult volunteers the opportunity to read one-on-one with Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade children on a weekly basis right in the school. Last year, 105 volunteers helped over 150 children improve their reading skills and confidence. According to their test scores, 93% of students in the program have improved their reading skills. Principals and teachers have enthusiastically asked our volunteers to return every year and have spread the word to other schools. We are currently recruiting volunteers for 13 schools throughout Orange and Dutchess County including Newburgh, New Windsor, Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Fishkill, Wappingers, and Arlington.
