About Us


Founded 1987

Mentors for Berks Youth was started in 1987 by a group of engineers and educators who saw the potential for helping high school students, particularly those who find themselves disadvantaged in some way.  M4BY is a grass-roots organization designed to help students finish high school and enter post secondary education. Ideally, students will return to employment in the greater Reading area where they can become contributing members of their communities.  Our organization facilitates one-to-one mentoring relationships between students in Berks County school districts (primarily the Reading School District), and dedicated members of our community.

(Founders were Thomas McMahon, Richard Kratz, Nancy Omaha Boy, Sandra Sorrels)

No place like Home

Currently, we do not have a place to call "Home".  In previous years, we enjoyed a small office on Lancaster Avenue due to a generous donation of space from Security First, Inc.  They graciously continue to allow us some storage space there as well.  If you would like to meet with us then please call or email our Executive director, Christine Sinclair to arrange a visit.  mentorsforberksyouth@Gmail.com  484-273-2081
