Make a Difference in a Child's Life: Volunteer Today

Tutor a Child and Help Them Succeed in School

Did you know that nearly one third of Florida's third graders attending public school cannot read at minimally proficient levels?

United Way of Broward County is entering the second year of ReadingPals - a three-year initiative focused on engaging, training and deploying volunteer "reading pals" in our community to help our youth succeed in school. 

The program will begin in September of 2013 and all volunteers will be trained on the curriculum prior to the start date. The next training will take place on Wednesday, July 24.   
Once the program begins, volunteers will be asked to dedicate one hour a week (for 25 weeks) to read in individual or small group settings. Partners in this exciting new program include:  United Way of Broward County, The Children's Movement, Broward County Public Schools, United Way of Broward County's Women's Leadership Council, Children's Services Council of Broward County and Broward County Public Library Foundation.

Become a volunteer today! For more information and the application, please contact Adriana LeCorgne at or call 954-462-4850 ext. 164.
