ReadingPals Application

Welcome to ReadingPals registration!  ALL NEW and VETERAN Pals must fill out an application form and choose their school, day and time.  ReadingPals help build a strong foundation for literacy and a love of reading.  By giving just a small amount of time, you can help children develop the skills and enthusiasm for reading, which is so critical to academic success.
 
This is a weekly commitment during the school year!  The program will begin in most schools the week of Sept. 16th.  New Pals will need to go through an orientation beforehand.  
 
If you are not in SW Florida before Dec. 1 you may still participate, depending on availability.  Please wait until you are a month or so away to fill out the form below.  You will be able to see what slots are still open when you choose your school.  Skip the training selection - instead email the ReadingPals Manager at NancyC@unitedwaylee.org to discuss your training.

Please Select Your Reading Location

Slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.  Teachers choose these slots based on their classroom schedules.  Volunteers may be asked to go where they are most needed. You will be assigned the same 2 children to work with all year - this helps you build a bonding relationship together.  You will work inside the classroom.  You will receive a confirmation email after you submit the application.  The ReadingPals Manager will notify you to confirm your school, day and time, and if applicable, your training confirmation.   
After your selection below, if the day and time you initially chose is taken, you will be asked to  choose a different day and time.  Some school times may change after the start of the school year.  You will be contacted if this occurs to verify your time commitment.
