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.

Contact Laura Balden ( or 225-769-0073.

“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
