Reading Buddies, a program of the RSVP Center of Essex and Hudson Counties at Jewish Family Service MetroWest, engages older adult volunteers in promoting childhood literacy in public schools. Volunteers age 55+ read to the same small group of students each week throughout the school year using a read-aloud format that supplements the school’s regular reading curriculum. Reading Buddies is a one of a kind program that uses volunteers to support children grades k-2 and educators in the classroom.
Multiple locations available in Essex County in West Orange, Maplwood/South Orange, and Orange. If you are interested in signing up to read to children in a small group setting once a week or becoming a substitute reader, please contact Julie Cramer at email@example.com or 973-637-1761.
Volunteers are required to complete a back ground check.
