Carr Cares Reading Buddy Program

The Carr Cares Foundation and the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce partnered up to implement the PALS (Peer Assistant Leadership & Services) program in Oak Cliff and the Greater Dallas area schools. The Kickoff Celebration of this partnership with Carter High School and Mark Twain Elementary took place on Tuesday, March 1st at Mark Twain Elementary.

The program will give Carter High School PALS students the tools to develop positive, one-to-one mentoring relationships with Mark Twain Elementary students while encouraging them to value literacy programs and activities in and out of the school environment. The Kickoff Celebration is designed to motivate Mark Twain peers about the importance of reading and educational enrichment.
