United Way of Suwannee Valley’s new Volunteer Opportunities for 2023:

ReadingPals: Volunteers are sought for United Way of Suwannee Valley’s ReadingPals initiative.  ReadingPals is an early literacy initiative focused on screening, training, and engaging volunteer “reading coaches.” The local United Way’ ReadingPals program will support kindergarten students in beginning their school careers with the necessary literacy tutoring to overcome deficiencies which exist at the time of kindergarten entry. Individuals interested in being a ReadingPals volunteer will be provided training to prepare for tutoring a student, pass a background screening, and be provided with reading curriculum materials. For additional information on participating as a ReadingPals tutor and fostering the love of reading in children click here.
