Book Buddies in Dover

Do you love to read? Would you like to help children learn to love reading too? Book Buddies gives adult volunteers the opportunity to read one-on-one with Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade children on a weekly basis during the school day. Although lots of retired teachers volunteer for Book Buddies, you don’t need a degree in education to be a volunteer. You just need to love reading and working with kids.

Last year, 200 volunteers helped over 220 children improve their reading skills and confidence. According to their test scores, 94% of students in the program have improved their reading skills. Principals and teachers have enthusiastically asked our volunteers to return every year and have spread the word to other schools. We are currently recruiting volunteers for 19 schools throughout Orange and Dutchess County including Arlington, Beacon, Dover, Fishkill, Newburgh, New Windsor, Pawling, Pine Plains, Poughkeepsie, and Webutuck.
