I haven’t read from the Torah since my Bar Mitzvah

I honestly don’t even remember my Torah or Haftorah portion. Like most secular American Jews, I just did it because my parents made me. The cantor basically just had me memorize everything, I read something I didn’t understand in front of my friends and family and then we had a ridiculously over the top and expensive party.

I’d really like to read from the Torah again, but this time out of a genuine desire to do so. Is getting a chance to do this as simple as just asking the Rabbi at my local Chabad and/or synagogue?
