About

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.

Reach & Rise group mentoring supports youth ages 8 to 15 who often reside in communities challenged by poverty, community violence, educational disparities and various other social issues. As a group mentor, you can build a supportive, consistent relationship with a group of young people. You will help to improve each mentee’s self-esteem, decision-making skills, school performance and interpersonal relationships.

Our site based group mentoring model pairs 2 volunteer mentors with 6 youth mentees. Volunteers provide group based mentoring services and create safe, healthy and meaningful relationships with youth. Group mentors will engage youth by utilizing therapeutically based interventions developed by Reach and Rise.


We hope to launch our very first Group mentor training the last week of April 2016! Our first mentor groups will be hosted in YMCA falicities.
