Our volunteers are trained as Reach & Rise Therapeutic Mentors to develop safe, healthy and meaningful relationships with youth. Therapeutic mentors are:

  • Trained to understand and appropriately respond to emotional, behavioral and mental health needs that youth may experience using practical approaches.

  • Empowered to work wih youth to help them create deeper and more intentional change, much like in a therapeutic relationship.

  • Provide youth with healthy, positive, supportive and growth including relationships with adults.

  • Help youth move from risk to resiliency.

  • Expected to adhere to limits of confidentiality as mental health clinicians would to protect the relationship between the mentor and the mentee and help youth build trust.
