Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
The Reach & Rise 1:1 Mentoring Program is a community-based program where an adult volunteer is matched with a youth age 9-17 for one year. The volunteer and youth then meet once per week for 1-3 hours doing community based activities (biking, arts and crafts, sporting events, etc.). Through their year together, the mentor and mentee (youth) work together on goals that the mentee set for him/herself. Throughout the year together, progress is tracked, improvement is made, and the mentee moves from risk to resliliency, helping them become a healthy adult.
