Bergen READS

Reading with Enjoyment Assurance Dedication and Success

In 2019 the Jewish Federation of New Jersey had to pause the Bergen Reads program. In an effort to continue the program's legacy, Bergen Volunteers adopted the program. Since then we have supported 300+ students offering them reading support to achieve academic success.

Bergen READS combats illiteracy in Bergen County by training Reading Buddies to work one on one with students in grades K-4. Reading Buddies serve as tutors, advocates, friends and mentors, meeting individually with students each week. Buddies help elementary public schools students enjoy and improve their reading skills in a comfortable and friendly environment.

Volunteers for this program must be 18 and older. Volunteers work with students at their scheduled time during the school day, Monday - Friday 9:00am - 2:30pm.
