Mission Statement

The Peninsula YMCA, based on Judeo-Christian heritage, seeks to enhance the lives of people through programs designed to develop spirit, mind, and body.

Description

Building Futures is a one-to-one therapeutic mentoring program serving youth ages 6-14 years. Each youth participating in the building Futures program is matched with an adult mentor, and together they agree to meet one to two hours a week for a period of one year.
Mentors provide yound people with a consisten adult role model as well as an understanding ear and the opportunity to problem solve. A mentor may serve many roles including that of friend, confidant, counselor, and cheerleader. Youth lacking this type of stable influence are often at risk for making negative choices that may permanently impact the rest of their lives.
