A time to practice reading together, for kid readers and teen volunteers.

Coast Capital Savings Reading Buddies is a time to practice reading together. Children are paired with a teen volunteer who will spend time reading together in a safe, supportive environment.

Reading Buddies happens twice a year, in the spring and fall.

Children (Readers)

Reluctant readers in grades 2-4 can practice reading in a safe, supportive environment. Children are paired with a "big buddy" teen volunteer to spend time reading together. The Coast Capital Savings Reading Buddies Program is not designed to teach children how to read.

Teen Volunteers (Big Buddies)

As a Coast Capital Savings Reading Buddies Volunteer, you are a role model to a young reader, practicing reading with your buddy and engaging in fun literacy activities. Being a "big buddy" is a rewarding experience, and counts towards CAPP hours.
