Ridgeway Elementary along with the Youth Bureau and Club Excel has made a successful and strong partnership with the Reading Buddies After School Program offered by JCY-Westchester Community Partners.  This program is an after school model that brings together the community by inviting older adults, college, and high school aged mentors into our school in order to help many of our students with homework, literacy, and math.  Currently at Ridgeway over 14 mentors help our students every Thursday for an hour.  Ridgeway Elementary School thanks the many great volunteers from the Reading Buddies Program.
