Welcome!

We are Bentley’s Buddies & Friends, a free service helping children improve their reading skills with the assistance of a certified Reading Buddy. A certified Reading Buddy provides a calm environment for a child to read and will not tell them they are wrong if they make a mistake.

If your little Reader needs some extra help, give us a call to see how we can help!

Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers who can consistently give an hour each week to volunteer with your dog in a reading setting? We have several openings in school settings as well as opportunities at libraries and Bentley’s Place.

To take the next step, head over to our Volunteer Page and fill out the application. Questions? Call (317) 318-2230.
