Research shows reading aloud to children can help them develop into strong readers. Being a strong reader also improves students’ on-time grade promotion and increases high school graduation rates.

ReadingPals connects passionate, committed volunteers with preschoolers who need a little extra help getting ready for kindergarten.

For 30 minutes or 1 one hour each week, a ReadingPals volunteer spends time with a pair of preschoolers, reading a book, completing activities, and developing skills that the children will need for success in school.

We have locations all across Jacksonville that are seeking committed volunteers. Please go to to learn more.
