Genzyme Reading Buddies  
Genzyme Corporation through Cambridge School Volunteers busses employees over to the Fletcher Maynard Academy to read with a first or second grade student weekly. Some students maintain the same Reading Buddy for two years.

Reading Buddies
Cambridge School Volunteers' Reading Buddies program pairs corporate and community volunteers with first and second grade students at Fletcher Maynard Academy for a weekly read-aloud program. Adult volunteers read-aloud to students from a curated library of picture books. Adult readers model fluent reading, help students make connections between the text and their own experiences, and add to students’ content knowledge. The focus is on developing a caring relationship between the child and adult through shared reading.

Tutoring Plus  
A Cambridge based organization that supports and encouraged the academic and social growth of Cambridge children through the use of volunteers and existing community resources. Tutoring Plus opened its newest program, a tutoring center for Middle Grade students, (Grades 6-8) at Fletcher Maynard, two nights a week. All of the programs are staffed by volunteers and are free of charge.
