Interested In Becoming A Reading Buddy?
The Chris Canty Foundation launched the Reading Buddies Program to expose youth to positive role models in the community, educational resources, and potential career paths. Youth participants learn to embrace teamwork and critical thinking skills through a series of activities that will also empower them to build healthy relationships and improve self-esteem.
This program also reinforces the importance of volunteerism and teaches youth participants the value in establishing strong, positive life skills. Through classroom learning and field experience, participants and their mentors embark on a journey that greatly impacts and improves their personal growth and development.
