Uplift Literacy is recruiting ReadingPals-reading volunteer tutors for the 2023-2024 school year!
Uplift Literacy is a Miami-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that believes literacy is the cornerstone to lifelong success. We partner with schools in underserved communities to empower children with the necessary literacy skills and resources to read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade, a milestone that is a significant indicator of a child’s future educational development.
ReadingPals is a statewide early literacy initiative that provides volunteer mentors for students from Pre-K to 3rd grade who may need extra help, utilizing one-on-one or small group settings. ReadingPals offers volunteers an opportunity to build meaningful relationships with young children, while helping them improve their social-emotional development and early literacy skills.
Helping children reach their full potential through literacy is a powerful way to give back to the community. Our compassionate volunteers change lives by equipping children from underserved communities with the necessary lifelong literacy skills to thrive.
We welcome volunteers from various professional backgrounds to come together and give the gift of literacy.
Uplift Literacy provides all training and materials needed to become a reading tutor.
Join us to eliminate the reading gap and strengthen lives through the power of literacy! To learn more about our programs, visit our website at www.upliftliteracy.org/readingpals.
