1:00 – 3:00 PM
United Way Suncoast Tampa Office
5201 W Kennedy Blvd #600, Tampa, FL 33609

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 are 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.

Building Your Brand – UWS Leadership Development Series

We think we have to #hustleharder or constantly #riseandgrind to achieve our career goals. The truth is, sometimes, we need a little help along the way from peers and leaders to reach success.

This session is ideal for those that are driving hard toward their objective, as well as those who may not yet have clearly defined professional goals, and those who feel like they are just coasting and need a kick start. Our esteemed panel will cover topics that include:

  • What is a personal brand?
  • Who is my audience and what is my story?
  • What are some strategies to building and nurturing an effective professional network? (Without spending a lot of time.)
  • With so many social networks, how do I build my online network? What does my brand look like offline?
  • How can I assess where I am now and what are achievable individual goals for personal brand development?

Join us for coffee, networking with other community-minded professionals, and engaging conversation to help build your professional skill and achieve your individual goals.

  • 7:30 am – 8:00 am – Coffee & Networking
  • 8:00 am – 9:00 am – Program
