Help A Child Learn to Read!


We have students waiting to be matched with a ReadingPal! If you are interested in reading for a half hour each week with two 4-year-old students, you can get started right away with online training at https://goo.gl/forms/G1Vsmti45VNvngx62

This program allows volunteers to be partnered with the same two students for the school year. Heart of Florida United Way provides all materials including books, craft supplies, and awards for the students and volunteers!

You can make a difference in preparing our preschool students for kindergarten. No teaching experience is required - we will train you and help you along the way!

The age requirement for this program is 16 years or up - however younger volunteers can participate if they volunteer with a parent/guardian over the age of 21.
