Reach and Rise Youth Mentoring - Berwick YMCA
The Reach & Rise® Mentoring Program is a BerwickArea YMCA program designed to help youth ages 9-17 develop tools to cope with issues such as low self-esteem, family and peer conflicts, academic underachievement and decision-making skills through a positive adult-child relationship. Volunteer mentors meet with mentees once each week to support them with challenges occurring in their lives while engaging in enriching community activities. Mentors don’t need any special skills, just a desire to make a difference. Volunteer mentors will receive training and extensive support to insure they are equipped to make a difference in the lives of young people. 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 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 Volunteer mentors must meet the specific criteria and training.
