"There are days that I feel that I am not really reaching my

first grader. He cannot sit still and repetition of words, cards, etc. does not seem to have an impact. I, of course, hang in

there because I have hope that it will all connect by the end of the school year. Recently, I gave Curtis a notebook. While we were setting up next week's book, he was writing in this little book. Then he showed me what he wrote....It said, 'I love ReadingPals.' Well that just made it all worth the effort I put into this wonderful program!"

-Maureen Barret, ReadingPals Volunteer

Give the Gift of Reading
It only takes one hour a week to make a lasting difference in a child through ReadingPals. United Way engages, trains and deploys volunteer "reading pals" who dedicate one hour a week for 25 weeks to read to a child. We are already seeking volunteers for the 2016-17 school year. Trainings will begin in early summer.

Alternative Spring Break Leads Teens to Give Back
More than 150 middle and high school students spent their spring break giving back as part of the Broward Youth Coalition's Alternative Spring Break. Daily activities included a beach clean up, feeding the homeless and working with the elderly in an Adopt a Grandparent event. The annual event gives local students a rewarding and meaningful spring break experience filled with volunteerism.
