United Way Suncoast is looking for volunteers to serve as part of a statewide initiative to help young children learn to read at grade level. ReadingPals is a program focused on increasing the number of students who are reading at grade level by the end of third grade.
United Way will connect volunteers to a particular site based on their preferred location and schedule. Volunteers will undergo a background screening and receive training in the curriculum selected for their region prior to being assigned a reading pal. Volunteers will continue to work with children in ReadingPals throughout 2013.
Those interested in becoming ReadingPals volunteers should contact United Way Suncoast. Interested prospective volunteers should contact Nicole Brown, Program Manager, ReadingPals, by calling 813-274-0998 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She encourages volunteers to become a part of the program. “Great readers eventually become great leaders,” said Ms. Brown.
