Reach & Rise® Group Mentoring Program of YMCA Cass and Clay Counties
Reach & Rise® is a national YMCA program designed to provide guidance and group-based therapeutic mentoring services to create safe, healthy and meaningful relationships with youth and help them reach their full potential through the support of caring adults. Reach & Rise® supports youth ages 8 to 15 who need the benefit of a positive adult role model. The Reach & Rise Group Mentoring Program matches a group of six youth with two mentors for either 8 or 16 weeks. Our volunteer mentors will help enhance self-esteem, confidence, sense of belonging, decision-making skills, school performance and relationships. Reach & Rise® is offered at no cost to mentees and their families.
