Mentoring in the Y Reach & Rise® is a therapeutic mentoring program for youth ages 9-17 who lack role models and live in communities challenged by poverty, crime, substance abuse, gangs, single-parent households and other social issues. Developed in 1992 by the YMCA of San Francisco, Reach & Rise (formerly Building Futures) joins evidence-based practices, mental health approaches, rigorous mentor training and a mentee matching system that has provided positive life experiences for thousands of youth over the last twenty years.
