Become a Reading Pal in Volusia schools!
ReadingPals is an initiative sponsored by the United Way of Volusia and Flagler counties. This unique community of readers spends time with Volusia County youth to build literacy and reading abilities. The relationship between mentors and their students is cultivated throughout the year, as volunteers become unforgettable mentors and youth become readers.
Are you interested in reading to a Pre-K child in school OR know someone who is? Just 1 hour of your time once a week for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year!
We are also looking for people who can substitute during the year!
- All interested volunteers should complete the Volusia County Schools volunteer application and background check here.
- All accepted mentors will participate in a ReadingPals orientation and training; date to be announced.
Please contact Francine Martin, Coordinator of the Reading Pals Program, for more information.
If you anticipate any barriers to your access, participation, transportation to, or inclusion in this opportunity, please contact the Center for Community Engagement.
