Y Readers


Y Readers is a free, afterschool academic enrichment program that serves students in kindergarten through third grade who are reading below grade level or at high-risk for falling behind. The program operates as an afterschool program during the academic school year.

The mission of Y Readers is to provide the additional support that students need to be proficient in reading by the end of third grade. Each component of the Y Readers program is designed to help students build foundational reading skills and gain self-confidence.

Y Readers programming is offered to families at no cost; it is fully funded by donors to the YMCA Annual Campaign, corporate donations, and foundation grants.

We are grateful for the support of our major corporate and foundation funding partners and all those who make the program possible for the kids who need us most.
