Bergen Reads is a youth literacy program sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Norhern New Jersey and dedicated to inspiring low level readers in grades K-4 with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success. We work in Hackensack and Teaneck NJ public elementary schools.

Spend one hour per week during the school day (you will be assigned a time slot Monday through Friday from 8:30am-3:00pm depending on your availability and teacher needs) working one-on-one with two students in grades K-4 as a Bergen Reads Reading Buddy. You will spend one half hour per week with each student, for a total of one hour of volunteer time weekly. No experience necessary; we will train you. Program runs from October through June.
