Holy Cross is committed to serving our community
Holy Cross began recruiting and training “Reading Buddy” mentors in order to support one of our partner schools, Gooch Elementary, in 2013. A Reading Buddy meets with a scholar (student) for 30 minutes to an hour a week to help the student improve their reading ability and to regularly provide extra encouragement to that scholar.
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 a training session.
