United Way is dedicated to ensuring all our Mid Coast children get the best possible start in life. One of our ways to accomplish this goal is to promote reading to infants and young children because national research has shown - and teachers in our region have confirmed - that reading regularly to young children is one of the best indicators of later success in school.
United Way is thrilled to be a part of the Maine Department of Education's #ReadtoME Challenge this February. The Challenge: Read for 15 minutes with a child in your life, take a selfie or short video, post it with #ReadtoME, and challenge your friends to do the same. Let us know by tagging us @United Way of Mid Coast Maine.
Like us on Facebook to receive updates and challenge your friends to read aloud.
