ReadingPal - City of Fort Lauderdale

United Way is promoting early childhood literacy by advocating for the ReadingPals program within the City of Fort Lauderdale. Did you know that 43% of Florida students cannot read at a minimally proficient level by the end of third grade?

The City of Fort Lauderdale is seeking volunteers who can commit to meeting with a student at their school for one hour each week, continuing for twenty-five weeks.
