Arizona BookPALS

Arizona BookPALS was started in 1998. BookPALS places union performers in Title I elementary schools to read aloud to classes on a weekly basis.

Arizona BookPALS inspires the LOVE of reading among children in schools in Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, Tucson and Flagstaff.

In addition to the BookPALS program, Arizona facilitates PencilPALS, a writing initiative where union performers interact with students through written correspondence.

Volunteers give an hour a week to make a big difference in children’s lives.
