Mission Statement:

REACH & RISE™ helps Bay Area youth ages 6-18 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!

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Elementary, Middle and High School-aged children and their families
Young people experiencing problems such as low self-esteem, poor academic performance, truancy, peer difficulties, family conflict and poor decision-making skills.
Youth from a wide range of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.
Youth encompassing a variety of family backgrounds including intact families, single-parent families, blended families, foster home and/or grandparent and other relative-headed families.

Program History:

This free program was established to serve the needs of young people not being met by existing youth services.
To offer over-stressed families a resource to help meet their children’s needs.
To provide youth with positive, growth-inducing relationships with adults through the mentoring process.
To make a difference in a child’s life.
