Reach & Rise is a national YMCA program designed to build a better future for youth by helping them reach their full potential through the support of caring adults.
Mentors are matched one to one with area youth to help youth achieve their goals,improve self esteem, increase school performance, and gain positive interpersonal relationships. Mentors are friends, counselors, role models, supporters, and guides.
Mentors must be at least 21 years old and willing to commit to 1-3 ours per week with the youth over the course of a year.
A background check will be run on all potential mentors and 15 hours of training will be provided.
