• We are recruiting new I READ volunteers for Fall of 2016!

    Youth need support during their early-grade years to ensure success in high school and beyond.

    Through this early-grade reading program, United Way I READ matches volunteer reading mentors with kindergarten students. Our goal is not only to build a love of reading but to expand a child's vocabulary and conversational skills.

    Volunteers mentor one to two students each week during the school day and are encouraged to remain with their students through 3rd grade.
