Online Reading Practice for Children in 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 will have the opportunity to engage with a teen Big Buddy, building relationships and practicing literacy skills. Children must have some reading ability already as this program does not teach them how to read. 

How To Register

Registration for the spring sessions is now closed.

New sessions will be offered in the Fall. Please bookmark this page and check back for updates.

Teen Volunteers (Big Buddies)

As an Envision Financial Reading Buddies Volunteer, you are a role model to a young reader, practicing reading with your Little Buddy and engaging in fun literacy activities. Being a Big Buddy is a rewarding experience and counts towards volunteer hours.
