Read Across the Globe

Inspiring Volunteerism & Literacy Across the World

Published 10.19.15

On Monday, October 19, the YMCA of Superior California will participate Read Across the Globe, a national YMCA initiative in partnership with Points of Light, which brings the power of volunteers together to inspire literacy in our communities.

Read Across the Globe is a one-day reading event designed to make an impact on literacy, inspire people to become literacy volunteers, and offer a chance for youth everywhere to experience the power of the written word. Working together with volunteers, educators and partners around the world, the Y and other participating organizations will read to children around the globe for 30 minutes to shine a light on literacy and take steps to close the literacy gap through knowledge and action. Read Across the Globe is an initiative created by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.

During the event, the YMCA Superior California volunteers will read to 600 children from ten YMCA Preschool and Childcare sites in the region, for 30 minutes - to inspire literacy in our community.
