Volunteering just 30 minutes of your time a week to read to a child makes a lifelong impact, in their life and yours. ReadingPals is a statewide early literacy initiative that provides volunteer mentors for students from Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) to 3rd grade who may need extra help, utilizing one-on-one or small group settings. In Miami-Dade, ReadingPals offers volunteers an opportunity to build meaningful relationships with preschool children. ReadingPals volunteers help children improve their social-emotional development and early literacy skills through interactions with two children 3 ? 5 years old. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic ReadingPals will be held virtually.
