Carr Cares Reading Buddy Program- 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 goal of the program is to give students extra help to become more proficient readers, develop mentor relationships, and encourage the importance of giving back to your community.

The Foundation has recently partnered with the Oak Cliff Chamber and Dallas Independent School District’s PALS program to provide students with trained peer helpers that promote a positive, supportive and productive school experience for other students.
