  • Work with the same group of 5-7 students the entire year.
When our students go to Reading Buddies every week, they are filled with excitement. Students partake in different reading activities and build new reading skills. The amount of growth these students have made has been amazing to watch. What has stood out to me is the positive feedback from parents. I have received phone calls from parents saying they have seen growth in their child. I hope this program reaches more schools and more volunteers want to experience such an amazing program.

Volunteering at Ridgeview has been a transformative experience. From struggling with basic words, she blossomed into a confident reader, capable of completing entire books during our sessions. Witnessing her growth and dedication was incredibly rewarding.
