Goal Buddies

  • Goal buddies are caring volunteers who visit elementary school classrooms twice a school quarter to encourage students to pursue reading, math, and life skill goals. Goal buddies act as program advocates, supporting and motivating classrooms and students to do their best!
  • Pairs of goal buddies are assigned to meet with two classrooms for an academic year. Each visit lasts approximately 30 minutes and are scheduled so volunteers know in advance when their visits will take place.
  • Goal buddies are invited to attend quarterly goal achievement celebrations, to award medals to the students who have made their goals.
