Be a Reading Friend!



This year we hope you will volunteer to be a part of UBC’s “To Highland With Love” ministry by being a Reading Friend. The children of Highland adore their Reading Friends, and it is a meaningful and fun experience!


The concept is simple, the commitment small, and the impact is huge.

1) A volunteer commits to work with one child for the school year.

2) The commitment is 30 minutes at least two times a month; once a week is ideal.

3) During these 30 minutes you may read to your assigned student, have him or her read to you, and be a friend who can show care and concern to that child.

4) Complete a background screening at the cost of $11 and attend a training.

Make a difference. Gain a friend. Have fun while having a rewarding experience. Join us! We’d love to have you.

“Why did you do all of this for me?’ he asked. ‘...I’ve never done anything for you.’ ‘You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.’ --Charlotte’s Web; E.B. White
