Teen Volunteers Wanted...

Are you a teenager looking for a volunteer opportunity this summer? Do you like working with kids? Than the Reading Buddies program is perfect for you. You can gain experience working with kids, get community service hours, and even get a free t-shirt!

The Missouri River Regional Library Reading Buddies program is a literacy-based program that pairs struggling readers from first, second and third grades with teen volunteers. They will meet once a week to read together, play literacy games and do group activities. Reading Buddies is designed to give children extra reading practice one-on-one with a teen mentor and to make the reading experience fun. The teen volunteers develop responsibility, leadership and communication skills while they serve their community and make a difference in children’s lives. By the end of the program, the children will have increased their reading skills.

Teen volunteers can find more information about the Reading Buddies program or pick up a volunteer application at their school or at the library. We will also have information about the program on our website soon. If you have questions about Reading Buddies, please email the Reading Buddies Coordinator, Jennifer Bray, jcreadingbuddies@gmail.com.
