Youth Literacy Mentoring is a comprehensive education based program designed to address the literacy gap among students K – 6 who cannot read at grade level.

How Youth Literacy Mentoring Works

Youth Literacy Mentoring partners with schools and community organizations to provide partnership development, program management, and implementation funding.

YLM programs operate during after-school time and consist of:

  • small group literacy instruction
  • iReady computer-based education modules
  • homework support

YLM also provides summer camp experiences customized based upon our partners’ needs.
