Due to high interest in the Book Buddies Program and restrictions of space, we are only able to accept 10 Little Buddies and 10 Big Buddies for each session. For this reason all buddies must apply with the intention of attending all 8 sessions and new this year, Big Buddy applicants will also have to submit to filling out an application that supports their interest of being a Big Buddy and peer mentor. Please have your students take their time and fill out the application thoughtfully. Their responses will help determine who is accepted into the program.
Individuals selected for the Book Buddies program will be contacted by September 26 and attend a mandatory Big Buddy training session on October 2nd from 3:30-4:15pm in the Oasis, located in Central School. All other individuals will be placed on a waiting list. Upon getting accepted into the program, a $25 non-refundable fee will be issued.
