'Books and Buddies' Reading Mentors Needed at Local Schools
'Books and Buddies' Reading Mentors Needed at Local Schools

Books and Buddies is a reading mentor program sponsored by Spread the Word Nevada, a children's literacy non-profit group, that matches elementary school students from a list of 26 adopted schools with adult mentors from the community. The organization has been serving low-income children and families from the adopted schools within the Clark County School District since it was founded in 2001.

Volunteers interested in helping kindergarten through fifth-grade students improve their reading proficiency, comprehension, and verbal recitation skills are encouraged to make a minimum 12-week commitment for one hour a week. Training will be provided and fingerprinting for background checks will be required.
