Chinatown YMCA Mentoring Program

Take me out to the ball game

MENTOR A CHILD. CHANGE 2 LIVES. It's especially hard for children during this pandemic time. They can't see their friends and they can't burn off their excess energy at home, and that is why mentoring is more important than ever. We are mortifying our program to half online and half in person, keeping both you and our mentee safe while still making an impact on the community.

Reach and Rise is currently looking for volunteers to mentor youth! Our program serve children with all different needs and mentors engaged them through physical activities, arts and crafts, and exploring different parts of the City. If you are interested, please contact Anna at ale@ymcasf.org!

Some highlights from our mentors: "My mentee really helped me realize I want to work with people and the community." M.G. "The best part of being a mentor is witnessing my mentee transform from a boy to a young responsible man." - JW

I look forward hearing from you soon!

Mission Statement

REACH & RISEā„¢ Mentoring Program strives to make a difference in a child's life. This free program was established to provide youth from over-stressed families an opportunity to grow through a positive relationship with an adult mentor. The program furthur embodies the mission statement of the YMCA to build strong kids, strong families, strong communities by enriching their spirit, mind, and body.


Highly trained mentors meet with mentees once each week to discuss issues occurring in the youth's life while engaging in enriching activities in the community. A key feature of the program is the inclusion of parents in the mentoring process, from matching their child to an appropriate mentor, to setting goals for the mentoring relationship. Youth are referred from schools, counselors, parents and other YMCA programs.
