     Be a Book Buddy

    Sykes has an active Book Buddy Program that pairs community volunteers with students who need a little extra help with reading skills.  Buddies meet once a week for 20-30 minutes to read and discuss a book, share other books they have read and work on targeted reading skills. Interested individuals can visit the Partners in Education page for information about volunteering.
