Reading YMCA is committed to helping young people, particularly in times of need, regardless of race, gender, ability or faith.

Our employees and volunteers provide housing and support and workshop and life skills training for young people, a children’s play group, respite for young carers, scouts cubs and beavers, football, table tennis, aikido, kung fu and many activities for senior citizens.
