About

REACH & RISE Mentoring through the YMCA

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

Become a mentor in our Reach & Rise Mentoring Program and change a child's future forever! Reach & Rise offers individual support to positively impact the lives of youth ages 6-17 in the Bay Area Peninsula region.

As a mentor, you can help youth who may be dealing with issues such as low self-esteem, social isolation, family problems, peer conflict, academic challenges or poor decision-making skills.

You'll go to parks, museums, libraries, hiking, biking, sightseeing, eating, playing sports and so much more! Let your imagination run wild and have an amazing time with your mentee!
