This school year we are highlighting the urgent need for Reading Buddies in conjunction with the UCPS Read with U program. We need volunteers to assist students with reaching reading goals.
The time commitment is 30 minutes each week. In many cases, the time students spend with their teachers and reading buddies is the best part of their day. By serving 30 minutes each week as a reading buddy, you can change a student’s life. Please help serve our community by giving your time and love to the students who need it the most.
All volunteers must be UCPS approved. Please use the following link for the required background check for school volunteers https://www.
