Description

REACH & RISE Mentoring Program

Reach & Rise 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.

What is Reach & Rise Mentoring program?

The program is designed for youth ages 6 to 17 who lack role models and are in communities challenged by poverty, crime, truancy, single-parent households, among other social issues. Research shows that youth facing such challenges are more likely to succeed with the support of a caring adult. 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. As part of program implementation, the Y will recruit and train adult volunteer mentors to provide direct one-to-one mentoring services and create safe, healthy and meaningful relationships with youth. Mentors and mentees will participate in service projects, field trips and other engaging activities.
