FACT: Nearly one third of Florida's third graders attending public school cannot read at minimally proficient levels. And, sadly, those children are four times more likely to drop out of high school.  In an effort to ensure that more children are reading at grade level by the end of third grade, United Way of Broward County is excited to announce ReadingPals - a three-year initiative focused on engaging, training and deploying volunteer "reading pals" in our community.
