Third grade is that pivotal moment when children transition from learning how to read, to reading to learn. Children who read at or above grade-level are more likely to succeed in school and in life. This is especially critical in the third grade, when children transition from learning to read to reading to learn. To improve grade level reading, United Way launched READ UNITED at the start of the 2017 school year.
READ UNITED matches community and corporate volunteers with third graders to help them get on track with grade-level literacy. Our Read United school partner is Mount Olive Intermediate School in Fort Mitchell.
What do Read United Volunteers do?
- Have a passion to help children learn
- Commit to one hour per week (volunteers partner with a buddy and read bi-weekly)
- Are consistent (children are counting on their volunteer)
***The Read United program has been paused for the Fall 2020 Semester. Local health conditions will be re-assessed in determining program status for the Spring of 2021.
