We need you to help students in kindergarten through 3rd grade, who are struggling in reading every day. The YMCA READS! Program offers a freementoring program to help students to succeed in school. Becoming a volunteer/mentor is a very easy process. Just a few hours a week can make a huge difference in a child’s life, and you will find it very rewarding as well.  If you have a love for education and are able to commit to just 1-2 hours a week with our YMCA READS! Program, we’d love to have you on our team! Please contact Jill Quick, YMCA READS! Director at 941-792-7484, ext. 109 or  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
