The Bookmark Buddies Mentoring Program is an exciting opportunity for caring and concerned community members to make a difference in the life of a child! Our third graders need your help to practice and improve their reading skills before the important state testing each spring.  Mentors meet thirty minutes each week at each of our 27 participating elementary schools, one-on-one, with a third-grade student who needs that extra little push to become a successful reader and lifelong learner.  No prior tutoring experience is necessary, and all materials are provided, making for an easy and fun weekly volunteer experience!
