The University Park YMCA story: 

As an organization that fosters a commitment to focusing on youth development and nurturing the potential of children, the YMCA recognizes what a great opportunity the Akron Reads program is and we hope to continue to be a part of this community effort. This is our first year participating in the program, and it has been such a fulfilling experience. It is gratifying to see a child have a breakthrough, whether it is figuring out a difficult word or finishing a book all on his or her own. Knowing that our team has made a small difference makes being a tutor all the more worthwhile.
