Inspire a Future Through Mentoring

Our Y is pleased to offer a One-on-One Reach & Rise® Mentoring Program! The program matches a caring adult mentor with a youth in need for one life-changing year!

Why does the Y focus on mentoring? Kids who have a mentor are…
  • 55% more likely to enroll in college
  • 78% more likely to volunteer regularly
  • 90% more interested in becoming a mentor themselves
  • 130% more likely to hold leadership positions

Nine million kids in the United States do not have a trusted adult in their lives. Help close the mentoring gap and make the future brighter for a child in need!
