A YMCA Initiative

Project Cornerstone is committed to helping every young person in Silicon Valley feel valued, respected, and known. We are building a community where adults support children and youth so they find their spark and thrive.

How does the program work?

Project Cornerstone's ABC Reading brings books (based on the theme of the year) that are relevant to a child's development and help them deal with peer pressure, bullying etc. YMCA provides all the necessary training and here are a few steps in the process.

  • A project cornerstone lead is assigned in each school and gets training from YMCA

  • The lead recruits and trains the volunteer readers in school

  • A volunteer is assigned to each classroom

  • The volunteer schedules time with the teacher and goes to the classroom, reads the book and engages students with relevant activity
