ReadingPals

ReadingPals

ReadingPals is managed by The Children’s Movement of Florida and administered through United Way — with the help of numerous community partners across the state including Flagler Volunteer Services.

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.

ReadingPals offers volunteers an opportunity to build meaningful relationships with young children in Florida, while helping them improve their social-emotional development and early literacy skills.

Social Emotional Learning -What we Hope to Achieve

By having you, the mentor, implement these 3 facets of the mentoring experience, you are helping to build the student into being a well rounded individual.

1. MENTORING – To build genuine, impactful relationships between students and our volunteer mentors.

2. EARLY LITERACY – To improve students’ understanding of the fundamental building blocks of early literacy.

3. SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT – To help students build a strong social-emotional foundation through self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making.

Primary volunteers are members of the RSVP program (retired and senior volunteer program) 55 and over, but the program is open to all volunteers.

WE ARE AWAITING GUIDANCE FROM THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AS TO HOW TO PROCEED WITH READINGPALS FOR THE 2020/2021 SCHOOL YEAR.
