How to become a reading buddy!

  • Reading Buddies

    If you are interested in volunteering as a ReadOKC Reading Buddy for the 2021-22 school year, please contact Abbie Vaughan at


    You can volunteer as a Reading Buddy to help an OKCPS student improve their reading skills and inspire them to love to read! As a Reading Buddy, your goals are to:

    • Spend quality consistent time with students to increase self-esteem, foster self-motivation, and promote responsibility
    • Assist in improving students’ attitudes towards reading

    There are different ways to get involved as a Reading Buddy, but ultimately will be decided by the principal based on the needs of their students.
