Yonkers Summer Reading Buddies
True friendship defies all boundaries, including age. Join us this summer as we give back to budding minds by sharing our love of literature with JCY Westchester Community Partners and the Yonkers Summer Reading Buddies Program. Follow in the footsteps of over 1,000 past volunteers by helping children complete their summer reading assignments. Read to pre-school or elementary school students or let them read to you. Check out video here for more information about the project.
Studies show that the amount of information students retain over the school year is dramatically impacted by the amount of time they dedicate to continued learning over the summer when they're on vacation from school. One survey found that students score lower on standardized tests after summer vacation than they do at the beginning of summer vacation. Help bridge the summer reading gap by joining us.
