“ReadingPals was designed by and is currently managed by The Children’s Movement of Florida – a nonprofit, nonpartisan movement of Floridians advocating for high-quality early learning opportunities, access to children’s health care, and parent support programs. Through your volunteer experience, you will see firsthand the importance of high-quality early education and why The Movement wants to give our youngest Floridians a strong start.
