REACH & RISE®

Group Mentoring Program

Reach & Rise® group mentoring supports youth ages 8-15, who may often experience social issues, poverty, community violence, and educational disparities. Volunteer mentors have the opportunity to change the life of not only one child but six. Mentors can help the mentees express feelings, have a positive outlook on the future, and become more confident in themselves leading to an endless possibility of positive outcomes. Mentors will meet with their partner and mentees once a week, to create a safe and healthy environment where these mentees can gain a meaningful relationship with other youth. Mentors don’t need to have any special background, but just willing to listen, empathize, respect, support, and guide a youth through their life struggles.  Mentors will go through training and be given full support by the program coordinator, so they are able to confidently help support the lives of the group.
