Mission Statement

At the Y, strengthening the community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We are more than a place. We’re a purpose.

Description

YMCA of Greater Houston and AARP Foundation Experience Corps are teaming up to bring an evidence-based program to the community that connects young students in kindergarten through third grade with trained adult volunteers age 50 and older who tutor them in literacy and help build their reading confidence.
