Summer Reading Buddies - Ossining

Are you great with kids and do you love to read? Volunteer to be a Summer Reading Buddy!

Participating children will select a book and be matched up with a volunteer. For about 20 minutes, the volunteer will encourage their student "buddy" to read, helping with specific words, pronunciation, and comprehension along the way. When they’ve finished the book, the volunteer will help the child complete a worksheet and then bring the child back to our staff who will match them up with their next “buddy.” Volunteers will work with several children during each two-hour session; every child gets a stamp on their "passport" for each day they attend.

Program schedule:

  • 10 a.m.-12 p.m. on Fridays from July 12 to August 9
