United Way Readers - United Way of Acadiana

 

Children learn to read in the early-grade years so they can read to learn throughout the rest of their lives. A missed opportunity to read at grade level by the fourth grade could set an individual’s quest for learning back permanently. You can help by volunteering to be a United Way Reader. Volunteers provide much-needed reading practice time in conjunction with classroom teachers for one hour per week for a 10-week time period.

 

And they're making a difference. More than 250 students in 17 schools were helped by 167 United Way Readers last year - and 80% of those students improved their overall reading scores.

 

The good news is most struggling readers can learn to read if given additional help in the early grades. That is why United Way of Acadiana is focused on increasing awareness on how you can provide reading and literacy support to children at risk of falling behind as a United Way Reader. Opportunities are available in Lafayette, Acadia and St. Martin parishes.
