San Antonio Youth Literacy – Reading Buddies Training

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Calling all those who wish to make an impact in the SA community and in children’s lives through reading!

San Antonio Youth Literacy (SAYL) is helping to move the needle on 3rd grade reading in San Antonio.  Research shows that young children who are not fluent readers by the end of 3rd grade may never catch up to their peers.  SAYL Reading Buddy Volunteers are matched with 2nd grade students in over seventy schools, and on average the students see an average improvement of four reading levels while also fostering their enjoyment of reading. We finished the past school year having 619 Reading Buddies, 8 which were from St. George Episcopal Church. The St. George Reading Buddies worked with 18 students for a total of 151 hours. On average, their students improved by 4 reading levels!

Visit sayl.org to find out more about the Reading Buddy Program and how you can get be part of the SAYL Tribe.
