Reading Practice for Kids Grades 2–4

Envision Financial Reading Buddies is a time to practice reading together. Children are paired with a teen volunteer and will spend time reading together in a safe, supportive environment. Sessions are 60 minutes long and meet once per week for 6 weeks in the Spring and Fall. The program is designed to support children who are new readers and helps to build their confidence and improve their skills.

Children (Little Buddies)

Little Buddies must have some reading ability already as we do not teach you how to read.
