School wants mentors to help kids read 

The Paso Robles Public Schools and Bauer-Speck are looking for volunteers to help mentor students. Bauer-Speck Elementary School will be launching a new mentorship program called “Books with Buddies.” The program is being implemented to encourage students in the second and third grade to develop a love for reading and literacy.

The program will provide one-on-one reading with a volunteer from the community who will partner with the same second or third grade student for 30 minutes once a week for 10 weeks during the student’s lunch hour. The goal is to develop a strong bond between the mentor and the student through one-on-one attention during each session, with the intent that each student will develop a love for reading and literacy. The attention and mentoring will have a lasting impression on every student’s education.

Thirty minutes of time once a week to help develop literacy and a love for reading is all it takes. The program begins March 4th and ends May 21st, and is held during the 11:40 a.m. – 12:25 p.m. during lunch period on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

If you are a community leader, local business owner, or community member, are interested in becoming a mentor, or would like more information, please call (805) 769-1350 for more information.
