Most people know the Y as a safe, nurturing place where kids learn to swim, shoot hoops and play baseball. But at today’s Y, kids are just as likely to have a reading coach as a soccer coach. That’s because the Y’s groundbreaking after-school and summer camp programs emphasize reading and helping kids close the achievement gap. They also teach values and wellness, while reducing stress on busy families.
It’s a winning formula that gives kids the wrap-around support and mentoring they need to thrive ─ in school, on the playing field and in life.
