United Way ReadingPals

Sign Up Today and Volunteer through ReadingPals
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 entering the second year of 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 First Grade students in the lower-performing schools throughout Broward County.  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.   (Trainings for volunteers will start on June 27, 2013)
