Kids Empowered: On the Move

Books and Book Buddies for Kids in Need

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!

Book Buddy Program:  We know the pandemic has put our kids facing poverty even further behind in school.  The book buddy program is to give kids an opportunity to work on their reading skills and show our neighbors we support them.

What is involved in being a Book Buddy?   As a Book Buddy you will be paired with another teen/adult along with an elementary child.  If you have a friend to do it with please let us know or we will connect you to another volunteer. If you record your sessions you can do it along.  

Each child participating will receive 6 books to read to their book buddy plus additional books to read at bedtime.  

Once a week your reading buddy will read a book to you by phone, Zoom, or Google Meet Up.  Please have child read for a minimum of 20 minutes.  It can be longer! 

When the child completes the 1st six weeks and they would like to do it again, we will have another set of books and goodies to deliver.  The start date is as soon we can get you set up!   You sign up to volunteer, we confirm a 2nd volunteer and get the books delivered to your book buddy to read to you.  Books are being picked out by reading specialists and purchased by us.  Funds are needed to buy the books.

We are planning 3 book events with authors by Zoom.  Children will receive the author's book and when they particpate in the zoom they will each receive a goodie delivered to their home.  Prizes will be given out also to make it fun!
