About

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 http://www.unitedwaynefl.org/readingpals/ to learn more.
