  • Be a Mentor! Reach & Rise is a national YMCA mentoring program that supports youth ages 6-17 who lack role models. 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. Requirements: be at least 23 yrs old, complete a 15+ hr training, pass fingerprinting, have a clean driving record (if driving a mentee), spend 1-3 hrs a week with a youth over the course of 1 yr.
