About

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