Dowd YMCA Volunteer Projects

At the Y, we believe that when people come together for a common cause, the whole community is strengthened. When you become a volunteer, you have the opportunity to share your blessings with those who need it most. Volunteering with the YMCA is powerful because you’re not just joining a mission, you’re joining a community of like minded people who want to make a difference. There are so many exciting and meaningful ways to get involved and volunteer at the Y. Branch projects are listed below, if you are interested in projects going on throughout our association, Click Here.

Y Readers Program - Starmount Academy of Excellence

Summary for Volunteer Matters Did you know that during the summer break, the average student loses about two months of reading skills learned the prior school year? The Y Readers program is committed to stopping that “summer slide” from happening, specifically as it relates to Pre-K-3rd grade students becoming strong readers. You can help stop the summer slide by becoming a Y Readers Book Buddy! Book buddies read with children in our literacy program for 4 weeks (1 hour each week) to help them build confidence and fluency in their reading. We’ll provide everything you need to read with your buddy. We hope you’ll join us as we work to make a difference in the lives of children in our community. Important: Book buddies should pick the day of the week that works best for them. The day you select will remain your day of the week for all 4 weeks.
