REACH & RISE Mentoring through the YMCA

President Obama and Steph Curry agree, mentoring saves kids' lives. 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 inspire a child's future. 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.
