INSPIRE A FUTURE: BECOME A MENTOR

Our YMCA is pleased to begin offering the 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. Reach & Rise™ supports youth ages 9 to 17 who lack role models and are in communities challenged by poverty, crime and single-parent households, among other social issues.

Why Be a Mentor?

  • Provide youth with a POSITIVE, growth-inducing relationship
  • Be a SOLUTION to the problem
  • Move youth from risk to RESILIENCY
  • Have a DIRECT impact on your local community
  • Make a DIFFERENCE in the life of someone in need
  • Mentor Requirements:
  • Must be at least 23 years old
  • Complete 15+ hours training (provided over 4-5 weeks)
  • Pass background security screening
  • Meet with youth 1-3 hours each week (flexible – scheduled by mentor, youth and youth’s family)
  • Make a 1 year commitment to the program

Who Does the program serve?

9-17 year olds who lack role models and are challenged by poverty, single-parent households, and other social issues and who could benefit from a meaningful relationship with an adult. Youth will participate in projects, field trips and other engaging activities.
