Harambee Christian School is looking for Reading Buddies available to come in during lunchtime on Tuesdays every week to help 3rd graders.
Reading Buddies are paired with one student for the duration of the program year and work on helping students develop reading fluency and comprehension in the context of a personal friendship.
This program runs in partnership with Central Ohio Youth for Christ's Columbus Tutoring Initiative. Harambee piloted the program last year with 8 volunteer/student relationships, and a great time was had by all.
Kip Dixon served as a Reading Buddy last year and said, "I really enjoyed getting to know my student, Iman, and how her eyes lit up when she conquered several pages of reading. It was really rewarding to know how much she looked forward to our time together!"
