Mission Statement

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

Description

Reach & Rise mentoring program 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 supports youth ages 6 to 17 who lack role models and are in communities challenged by poverty, crime and single-parent households, among other social issues. As a mentor, you can provide a positive and consistent relationship with a young person, helping to improve your mentee’s self-esteem, decision-making skills, school performance and interpersonal relationships.

Volunteer mentors are matched with a young person for one year to provide one-to-one mentoring services and create safe, healthy and meaningful relationships with youth.

MENTOR REQUIREMENTS

  • be at least 23 years old
  • complete the 15 hour training
  • pass a fingerprint security screening
  • have a clean driving record and valid auto liability insurance (if driving mentee)
  • spend 1-3 hours a week with youth over the course of a year
