YMCA Literacy Program
The YMCA’s literacy program helps struggling readers in our community develop the literacy skills they need to succeed in life.
Y-Literacy offers free one-on-one reading tutoring to students grades K-4 who are reading below grade level. Our curriculum covers all of the essential components of literacy: phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. Our literacy program and its team of volunteer tutors have:
- Provided free reading tutoring assistance to hundreds of children in the Nashville area
- 87% of students served in the program increased their reading level
- On average, 1,000 books are distributed throughout the community every year
