Senior Corps Reading Buddies is an innovative early-childhood literacy development program which advances literacy skills and creates enthusiastic, confident young readers in 16 public schools throughout Monmouth County. Last year Reading Buddies linked more than 150 volunteers, primarily seniors, with over 1,500 elementary-aged students. On a weekly basis our readers visit the schools during the day for one hour and read aloud to students, in kindergarten and/or first grade. Each week the volunteer reads to the same four or five students creating a bond and helping to foster a love of books.
