Summer Reading Buddy Program

Richmond Hill Central Park Library

Summer 2017

Books Before Looks held a Reading Buddies Program that fixated around establishing confidence in young students through the realization of diversity and social issues found in books. High Schools reading buddies were paired with children aged 7-12 in a weekly session that helped them form bonds, develop reading skills, and learn self-confidence in a fun way. This will be an annual or semi-annual project that gives children access to mentorship and education.
