Description

WHAT IS EBOOKBUDDY?

eBookBuddy is a free, online, after-school program for elementary students in need of reading support, where students read with a dedicated volunteer 1-3 times per week in 30-minute sessions via a secure, monitored online meeting platform. Students and volunteers who are paired together stay together for the duration of the program so that they have ample opportunity to grow a strong rapport, so that the student can see the best benefits of reading in relationship towards the improvement of their literacy as well as other benefits, such as growing conversation skills, English language use, and more. Volunteers also love getting to bond with their student, with many volunteers calling meeting with their buddy the highlight of their week!
