About

WHAT IS READINGPALS?

ReadingPals is a school-based mentoring program that helps four year old students build strong pre-literacy skills necessary for kindergarten success. By supporting children early in their education now, we can work toward increasing our high school graduation rate.

HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER?

To help tackle the education gap, 200 volunteers are needed to serve one hour per week or 25 hours total with a student during the 2016-17 school year.

ReadingPals volunteers will use themed literacy kits to engage independently with a student in age appropriate learning activities.

Volunteers will receive mentor training and ongoing support. A Level II background screening paid for by United Way is required. Volunteers are asked to be smoke, tobacco, and nicotine free while serving as a ReadingPal.

To volunteer, call 434-3157 or email readingpals@unitedwayescambia.org to schedule a ReadingPals information session. For more information, visit www.unitedwayescambia.org/readingpals.
