ReadingPals Orientation

1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

St. Petersburg Main Library

3745 9th Ave. North 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.

ReadingPals offers two opportunities to volunteer:

      • Choosing a one-hour time slot when it fits your schedule, working with different children every time as a ReadingPal Reader; or
      • Committing to regularly meet one hour a week with the same child as a ReadingPal Tutor.

Both volunteer positions require a background screening and a two-hour orientation to prepare you to work with students.

There are 18 after-school sites to choose from across Hillsborough, Pinellas and Sarasota counties.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a ReadingPal. If you have any further questions please contact Nicole Brown at or 813-274-0998.
