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.
