Summer Reading Buddies- Yonkers

Volunteers should expect to work with several children during each 2 hour session. The children will have selected a book and then be matched up with a volunteer. After introductions the “buddies” will find a spot where they can work together for 20 minutes. The volunteer will encourage the student to read, help with specific words, pronunciation and comprehension. When they’ve finished the book the volunteer will help the child complete a worksheet. We give out “passports” to every child who registers for Summer Reading Buddies and each child gets a stamp on his passport for each day they attend. The volunteer will then bring the child back to our staff who will match them up with their next “buddy”. Summer Reading Buddies volunteer opportunities are also available at the Ossining Public Library.

The program starts on July 10th and runs until August 15th.  It runs every Tuesday and Wednesday at the Yonkers Riverfront Library from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
