Thanks, Kelsey Mesher, for writing this article! The timing for publication couldn't be better. We at Writing Buddies are currently recruiting volunteers for a writing session which will begin in mid-January. The young Buddies this time will be a class of bright and lovable first-graders.

We train all volunteers, so you'll always know what to do, and there's never any need for anxiety. All you need is affection for kids and a desire to help them!
