Reading Buddies


Holy Cross is committed to serving our community

Holy Cross began recruiting and training “Reading Buddy” mentors as part of our support of our partner school, Tom C Gooch elementary in 2013. In 2017 we are expanding this program by partnering with DeGolyer Elementary as well! A reading buddy meets with a scholar (student) for 30 minutes to an hour a week to help the student improve his/her reading ability, and to provide extra encouragement and support to that scholar regularly.

The day/time that a specific Buddy goes to meet with their assigned scholar is flexible and can be set around your specific schedule. All you have to do to be a “Reading Buddy” is to fill out the online application and attend an hour long training session.
