Meet Jeff

"Everyday I come to work at my dream job."

Jeff found the YMCA while searching for a new career working with urban youth. A former colleague from the business world introduced him to the YMCA and our mission. Jeff ran after school programs and summer camps with the Belleville Ys, before transferring to YMCA Community Literacy. “As soon as I discovered Y Literacy I immediately knew it was the place for me. Everyday I come to work at my dream job of improving education and literacy rates in St. Louis.”  Y Literacy provides tutoring programs for youth and adults who struggle with reading, writing and English language skills. These programs are enriching and supportive educational experiences for the participants.
