Why Become a Pre-K Buddy?
43% of Kindergarten students in Madison County are not prepared to enter school. Early childhood learning (age 0-5) is key to a child’s future success in school and learning.
What Can You Do?
You can volunteer to help improve the quality of preschool and childcare facilities across Madison County by becoming a Pre-K Buddy.
What Would I Do?
Pre-K Buddies will work with teachers by assisting in the classrooms. Activities may include reading, playing games, doing puzzles, or other ways to help improve a child’s social and language skills.
Pre-K Buddies volunteer no more than 8 hours each month. Times can be flexible, planned according to school’s and your schedule.
Pre-K Buddy Program locations:
Anderson Head Start Program

Sign up and become a volunteer that wants to make a difference. With the guidance of the United Way Born Learning and school staff you will become the best Pre-K Buddy volunteer you can be! (Not 55? That's okay! Pre-K Buddies can be any age 18 and over.)
