Thank you for mentoring a pair of 4 year olds!


45% of Jacksonville's students begin kindergarten unprepared and not on reading level. Being a strong reader improves students’ on-time grade promotion and increases high school graduation rates. Join the fight to improve early learning literacy!

United Way's ReadingPals program 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.
