Do you love to read? Would you like to help children learn to love reading too? Book Buddies at the Early Learning Center (ELC) in Poughkeepsie gives adult volunteers the opportunity to read with children in Kindergarten on a weekly basis during the school day. Volunteers may read aloud to children, assist them in reading, or help with literacy centers in the classroom. Book Buddies help show young children how fun reading can be. The principal and teachers at the ELC have enthusiastically asked our volunteers to return each year.

We are also recruiting volunteers to read one-on-one with children in K - 4th grade in schools throughout Orange and Dutchess County including Newburgh, New Windsor, Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Fishkill, Wappingers, and Arlington.
