Community Reading Buddies 2018
Welcome! The Community Reading Buddies 2018 application is now open.
We will be working at three preschool sites this summer:
Highland CDC – 1322 86th Avenue, Oakland, CA 94621
Laurel CDC – 3825 California Street, Oakland, CA 94619
United Nation CDC -- 1025 4th Ave, Oakland, CA 94606

*You can volunteer at as many sites as you like, or just one.

Weekly Schedule
We haven't finalized our summer schedule yet, but here's what you can plan on.

The program runs Monday - Friday for 8 weeks, June 11- August 3. Each day, there is a morning session (usually about 10am) and an afternoon session (usually about 2pm). Each session runs two hours, and you can do one or both.

We visit different sites on different days. There's a lot of flexibility - you can choose which days, times, and locations to volunteer. The minimum we ask is 4 hours per week (two sessions) for three weeks, but theoretically you can work as many as 20 hours/week by doing all the sessions.

Registered volunteers will be able to sign up for the available dates and times on Sign Up Genius. On-site training sessions will be held at the school sites on Tuesdays and Wednesdays one hour prior to the program start time for any mentors who have never gone through a training.

If you have any questions while completing the application form, please call us at (510) 550-5591 during business hours.
