How to become a reading buddy!
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.
The first step to volunteering as a Reading Buddy is to complete the OKCPS volunteer application by clicking here.
