YMCA READS! is a wonderful local AND statewide program that offers FREE reading intervention tutoring to students in grades K-3. This program not only offers children the chance to grow academically, but also provides the chance to build positive relationships with our amazing volunteers. Here in Tallahassee, students also receive a free snack to start of the tutoring session, and this time gives the children time to build peer relationships as well. All lesson plans are created by the Site Coordinator, Lauren Sima, whom is a certified teacher and has many years of teaching experience in the primary grades!
