About

Commit to 1 1/2 hours a week to work with an elementary student. You can work with them Monday through Thursday 1:00-2:30 on any of those days. You choose the day and a student will be chosen who needs to have that committed reading aide. Reading buddies help with reading basics, and playing reading/phonics games, etc. They help them during the Reading Fun Camp. This consistently helps the child learn skills and confidence in what they are doing and even in who they are - which better prepares them for life. We have seen kids advance entire grade levels because of having this intentional time.
