Reading Friends 

Reading Friends is a loved and valued part of the “To Highland with Love” ministry. Volunteers from UBC and the community work one-on-one with a child, reading and being a friend. Children, school volunteers and community all benefit – and it’s fun! 


As a reading friend you will: 

  • Work one-on-one with a student in grades Pre-K to 2nd grade 

  • 30-45 minutes per week 

  • Work on reading skills and develop a friendship with your student 

  • Have FUN and be a friend 

  • Attend a one hour training session and complete a background check 


We believe in the children of Highland. We believe their futures are bright, and we believe we can help them succeed. Make a difference and brighten a child’s life by being a Reading Friend. 

Contact Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) today to get involved!
