YMCA Training Volunteer Reading Tutors
Could you spend 3 hours each week helping an ADULT improve reading skills?
We will provide you with 10 hours of training, materials, and on-going support you as you meet twice each week with a learner. We assess all learners and match you with someone whose schedule and logistical preferences match yours. After you are matched you can meet at a YMCA, public library, or any other public location.
Our learners vary from 2nd grade – 9th grade reading levels. Many are working on specific goals like filling out job applications, working for a promotion at work, or learning to help children or grandchildren with homework. Most of our learners are in their 40s and 50s.

Nutrition Tip of the Month
After spending most of the day at work, we rush to pick up our children, take them to after-school activities, and finally arrive home, only to open the refrigerator door thinking, “What’s for dinner?” At this point, getting take-out seems like the perfect answer. Sound familiar? Brenner FIT helps families learn how to plan meals ahead of time. Join Katie Maxey, Registered Dietitian with Brenner FIT, to hear about meal planning tips that can help you and your family.
