Reading Program

R.E.A.C.H. is an after-school tutoring program currently serving students grades 2-5 at our two YES locations. Students are coached by trained tutors in a safe environment that caters to the growth of learning and understanding. Students engage in academic and character building activities in a classroom with 1:6 ratio of coaches to students.

Focus is placed on academic growth through regular reading, phonics, and grammar, with character growth in group discussions and journaling about themes and morals of the literature. Trained tutors with backgrounds in teaching, English, youth ministry, non-profit management or other related fields are needed.

Thank you to the Memorial, Scarlett Family, and HCA Foundation--our primary funders of our R.E.A.C.H. program! We appreciate your continued support!
