YMCA needs volunteer mentors

MARQUETTE – The YMCA of Marquette County is looking for volunteer mentors for its Reach & Rise Mentoring Program.

This is a free one-to-one therapeutic mentoring program for youth ages 6-17 and their families. This program is managed by a licensed professional counselor and training on para-professional counseling skills is included.

The Y is looking for mentors ages 23 and older who value investing time in children and youth, healthy relationships, and guiding by modeling healthy communication and behaviors. This is a valuable opportunity to make a difference in another person’s life and invest in community.

Contact Melissa DeMarse at 227-9622, ext. 13, or by email at mdemarse@ymcamqt.org to inquire about how to become a mentor.
