Calling all volunteers!

Make a meaningful difference in a child's life by becoming a mentor and helping them overcome reading challenges. Join the YMCA of Collier County YREADS program and discover how you can get involved.

By dedicating just a few hours per week, you can make a profound impact on a child's literacy journey. As a YREADS mentor, you'll have the opportunity to work with students in small groups or individually, fostering their self-confidence and enhancing their academic abilities. Be a tutor and a friend, empowering children to unlock a brighter future.

No previous experience required! All volunteers will be trained at the Naples YMCA prior to start.

To learn more, please reach out to Emily Martin, our YREADS Coordinator for Golden Gate Elementary School at ggreads@ymcacollier.org
