– About Thurston United Way’s Reading Buddy Program
“Reading Buddies helps developing young readers reach benchmark reading goals by the end of the third grade. Volunteers are paired with a first, second, or third grader who is below grade level reading, for 45 minutes a week during the school year. Trained volunteers use a variety of tools to help emerging readers learn their sight words, comprehension, identify new words, gain confidence in their reading skills, and more!

One-to-one tutoring with an emerging young reader forms a bond between students and their tutors; this is a successful strategy to help students improve their reading skills,” from United Way-Thurston.
