About Reading Buddy - Become 1 in 1000!

Ede96d7ad80b14fc2268c80bcddeb22ca075426c

Thirty minutes a week can change a life!

Studies show that students who read at or above grade level by fourth grade are much more likely to graduate from high school. Yet an estimated 70 percent of Michigan fourth graders aren't meeting that standard.

Help a young reader succeed by becoming a Volunteer Ready Buddy! While reading and working with Kindergarten or 1st grade students, volunteers will:
-Reinforce reading strategies
-Improve letter-sound association
-Improve reading language comprehension
-Develop a positive relationship with a child

Interested volunteers must commit to 30-40 minutes per week during any weekday (M-F) at their desired elementary school within Battle Creek or Lakeview.

Time slots vary by school and are available in both the morning and afternoon beginning and scheduling is flexible.

Before entering the classroom, volunteers must complete an application and background check and also must attend an hour long training session to be arranged by the Literacy Coach at the school of your choice.
