The Reach and
Rise mission is to help at-risk youth overcome personal, social, and family challenges through a positive adult-child relationship.
Reach and Rise offers 1-to-1 mentoring to at-risk youth in San Francisco/Marin/San Mateo/Alameda counties. We help children
develop tools to cope with issues such as low self-esteem, family and peer conflicts, academic underachievement, and decision-making
skills. We are unique in that we provide a 15-hour paraprofessional training to all mentors before matching, which prepares
them to work successfully with at-risk youth by developing relationship-building skills, exploring issues facing at-risk youth,
and strategies to handle difficult situations. Thorough ongoing support is provided by the coordinator who is a Marriage and
Family Therapist Intern.
