Reach & Rise Individual Mentor

YMCA Reach and Rise one-to-one mentoring program is designed to help volunteer mentors and mentees achieve goals/objectives developed by the match. The program helps build a better future for youth by matching them with an adult mentor for one year.

As a mentor, you will gain personal satisfaction from making a difference in a youth's life by devoting time and sharing your strengths. You will also gain an increased regard and respect for people from different cultures and backgrounds. Most importantly, you will experience a sense of belonging to your community with lasting memories and fun times!

Mentees are age 6-17 and have been identified as needing an adult role model. Mentees are in the Nashville area and most have an affiliation to the YMCA of Middle Tennessee.

Mentor requirements:
- Age 23 or older
- Complete 15+ hour interactive training
- Complete and pass background screening
- Provide a valid copy of auto liability insurance (if car owner and transporting youth)
- Commit to at least one hour per week with designated mentee over the course of a year
