The YMCA of Metro Denver has been working to reduce food insecurities in the community by distributing free boxes of: produce, milk, eggs, and bread, that we receive from the USDA and Food Bank of the Rockies! We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping with distribution efforts. Volunteer shifts are only a few hours long and extremely rewarding!
This opportunity takes place on Mondays at the Glendale Sports Center from 12:30pm - 4pm.
At the YMCA, we recognize that it takes a village to raise strong, confident children. To help make a positive difference in the lives of both parents and kids, the YMCA leads the free Reach & Rise Therapeutic Group Mentoring Program. Through this program, children and teens ages 8 to 15 take part in weekly group activities with other kids and with positive adult role models in a supportive and fun environment.
In the program, two adult mentors are matched with a group of 6 youth mentees once a week for two hours. Mentors serve as role models, friends, and confidants - all an additional source of support for children.
Together, the groups meet at assigned sites, such as YMCA branches, schools, or community centers, and take part in sports, community service programs, and games. They also discuss and do role-playing about issues and events going on in their lives.
There are two program cycles: An 8-week session that meets in the summer, and a 16-week session that meets in the fall and spring. Mentors follow a YMCA group mentoring handbook, and the program director and families convene monthly to make sure each child’s goals are being met.
