||The United Way Volunteer Center is the designated Volunteer Center for Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties. We help you locate opportunities to serve in our community. We work in collaboration with other agencies and organizations on special projects, events and initiatives throughout the year. We also have Service-Learning opportunities at our agency at certain times of the year.
||Inspire a love of reading! United Way manages a literacy program called ReadingPals. ReadingPals matches passionate, trained volunteers with pairs of Pre K and Kindergarten children who need extra help. ReadingPals volunteers help improve children’s literacy and oral language skills. They also build meaningful relationships by providing the individual attention many kids need to thrive. Volunteers spend one hour a week reading and engaging in educational activities with a pair of students. Commitment is through the whole school year. Interested in being a ReadingPal?
