“I want to be a doctor when I grow up. The Y helped me know that I can do that.”

“I want to be a doctor when I grow up. The Y helped me know that I can do that.” - Mariana. As the only English-speaking member of her household, Mariana was having challenges in school as a third-grader reading at a first-grade level. Mariana came to our Y Community Literacy program for one-on-one tutoring support. She recently graduated from the program as a fifth grade student reading on a sixth grade level! That's fantastic, Mariana! Keep up the great work!
