Team Read: In-School Programs
Please see the available Buddy Reading days and sessions below. The school assigned to each day is provided.

Volunteers are asked to arrive to the school 10 minutes before the session start time in order to have time to sign in at the office and get settled in the classroom so the session can begin at the stated time.

You may sign-up for 1 or multiple 30 minute sessions. Selecting multiple times of availability does not mean you are committing to all of the sessions. The 10 minute break in between sessions is just a short break while the Instructor transitions groups.
