Reading Buddies


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, Tom C. 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.
