Next Upcoming Event:

ReadingPals Orientation

11 am – 1 pm

St. Petersburg Library

3745 9th Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33713

Children who are read to are more likely to become good readers. And children who read at grade level by the fourth grade are four times more likely to graduate from high school.

Become a ReadingPal.

ReadingPals is a United Way program where volunteers provide positive reinforcement and personal attention to a child (kindergarten through 3rd grade) who would benefit from a little extra reading support. We aim to not only improve children’s reading skills, but also impart a love of reading.

As a ReadingPal volunteer, you will:

      • Commit to regularly meet one hour a week with the same child as a ReadingPal Tutor.

There 6 after-school sites to choose from across Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

For more information and to submit interest in becoming a ReadingPal, contact Nicole Brown at nbrown@uwsuncoast.org or 813-274-0998.

Additional info

Our ReadingPals program partners with Hillsborough County Schools and Boys & Girls Club. To volunteer with these sites, you must also be registered with these organizations.

Voluntine’s Party

February 11, 10 am – 1 pm

Bring your valentine or come solo and meet new friends. Either way, you’ll have a blast at our first-ever Voluntine’s Party. United Way is partnering with Boards for Bros to put together skateboards and tag them with inspiring messages for kids in the community. We’ll also be landscaping and beautifying the park. The party includes music, fun activities and Boards for Bros will have instructors on-site giving skateboarding lessons. Plus, you’ll get lunch and time for socializing after the work is done, so don’t miss out.
