Reading Buddies are a key part of our programs and provide the essential reading comprehension assistance to a student once a week. As a Reading Buddy, you will help a child develop their comprehension skills through reading high-quality literature to them. Above all, you will be a positive role model who encourages them and makes reading fun!

Why we need YOU: In 2021, 59 percent of white third graders were reading on level, compared to 26 percent of Latino students and 22 percent of African Americans, according to Dallas education advocacy coalition Commit. Readers 2 Leaders needs your help to increase the number of students reading at or above grade level by reading to struggling readers, one-on-one or in small groups.

When and where can I volunteer: We have Reading Buddies spots available in our After-School programs, Monday-Thursday from 3:45-5:30pm.

  • Learning Center (Booktown): 2800 N Hampton Rd, Suite 120, Dallas, TX 75212
