You can volunteer as a Reading Buddy to help an OKCPS student improve their reading skills and inspire them to love to read! As a Reading Buddy, your goals are to:
- Spend quality consistent time with students to increase self-esteem, foster self-motivation, and promote responsibility
- Assist in improving students’ attitudes towards reading
There are different ways to get involved as a Reading Buddy, but this will ultimately be decided by the principal based on the needs of their students
Reading Buddies visit their assigned school once a week and spend 30-45 minutes reading with students. Reading Buddies meet during the school day at a time determined by the principal, ensuring students do not miss core reading instruction. Reading Buddies will meet with the same group of 1-4 students each week from September to March.
