United Way of Marion County presents ReadingPals training in partnership with MTP. This two hour workshop provides volunteers with the tools and tips to foster the joy of reading. ReadingPals program has served children that need additional literacy support. Some students do not know their alphabet or sounds. Help to instill that joy of reading in kindergarten students with just your investment of one hour on Tuesday & Thursday during the school day. Just imagine the students' smiles when they ready their first sentence! Help bring that smile to a child. The process of becoming a ReadingPals is easy: Attend a workshop & Pass a background screening (There is no cost to the volunteer for the background screening).
