In the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are working together to build a #StrongerMiami by supporting our students who are not in school.
School closures impact programs that support mentorship, early literacy and social-emotional development, like ReadingPals. Studies show that children with mentors are more confident and have fewer behavioral problems. Early intervention and individualized attention gives students the best likelihood of success.
In lieu of a one-on-one reading opportunity, we have called on all volunteers to share their passion of reading with any child in our community.
