Sign Up Today and Volunteer through ReadingPals

Training  Date for Volunteers: June 27th, 2013- Time:9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Location: Jack and Jill Children’s Center-1315 W. Broward Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312

FACT: Nearly one third of Florida's third graders attending public school cannot read at minimally proficient levels.

And, sadly, those children are four times more likely to drop out of high school. In an effort to ensure more children are reading at grade level by the end of third grade, United Way of Broward County is excited to announce ReadingPals - a three-year initiative focused on engaging, training and deploying volunteer "reading pals" in our community. The focus of this initiative will be working with students first  Grade in the lower-performing schools and childcare centers to encourage and enhance early literacy.  Volunteers will be asked to dedicate one hour a week (for 25 weeks-starting in September, 2013) to read in individual or small group settings. 
(Please Email me to RSVP for Training)

Please check our web site for more information about the program:  and for  locations of the schools participating in ReadingPals during the 2013-2014 school year.

Looking Forward to hearing from you,
