Mentor with the Y

Who mentored you?

Who helped you become the person you are today? Who were the supportive adults in your life that provided a source of encouragement and helped you feel less alone?

1 in 3 youth will grow up without a mentor.

The YMCA is dedicated to changing this, one life at a time. Through our Reach & Rise mentoring program, we seek to provide youth with a caring adult who will walk alongside them as both a friend and a role model.

The Y offers both 1-to-1 and Group Mentoring.
