Mentor to make
Did you know that 43% of Florida students cannot read at a minimally proficient level by the end of third grade? ReadingPals, United Way of Broward County's volunteer-based early literacy initiative provides mentors for students from Pre-K through 3rd grade for one hour a week for 25 weeks to read to a child.
We hope to achieve:
- To build genuine, impactful relationships between students and our volunteer mentors
- To help students build strong social-emotional foundation through self awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making
- To improve students' understanding of the fundamental building blocks of early literacy
