In just two hours a week you can mentor a child in reading that could change a life forever. YMCA Reads! is an after-school reading assistance and mentoring program at Plantation Elementary School. This program offers a free service to students who are having trouble in reading and get the extra help they need to succeed in school and eventually in life.
