YMCA Training Volunteer Reading Tutors

Could you spend 3 hours each week helping an ADULT improve reading skills? 

Training sessions: coming soon

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

Balance your Lunch with Brenner FIT

Eating lunch is very important for everyone. Lunch re-energizes our bodies and keeps our metabolism active throughout the day. When packing a balanced lunch for yourself or for your child, aim for three to four food groups. An example of a balanced lunch would be chicken salad with crackers, baby carrots and grapes. Having a mixture of three to four food groups helps to fill our tummy up and last until the next meal! Join Brenner FIT’s dietitian, Katie Maxey, to learn more about preparing a Balanced Lunch.
