Kids4Kids Buddy Reading Programme
Posted by Peter MUIR
Kids4Kids have started off their new round of their Buddy Reading Program, a project established to bring the enjoyment and benefits of storytelling to children who would otherwise not have the experience at home or school.
On a weekly basis, volunteers aged between 8 and 17 visit various local community centres and schools to read age-appropriate stories to children. These sessions are led by a volunteer leader who is responsible for planning, running and overseeing each session.
The children at the community centres and schools get a chance to be read to and take part in fun ice-breaking and learning games during the reading session, which lasts for 1.5 to 2 hours.
To sign up as a buddy reading volunteer or to find out more details, visit the Buddy Reading Program website.
