Youth Mentoring

The Butler County Family YMCA is excited about our youth group mentoring program called Reach & Rise®. This group model helps empower youth ages 8-15 in overcoming challenges that are prevalent in today’s society such as low self-esteem, poor academic progress, peer difficulties and/or poor decision making skills.

For more information on Reach & Rise® or to volunteer, contact Kathryn Eberle Cotter, MT-BC, Reach & Rise® Youth Mentoring Coordinator at 724-287-4733, ext. 136 or
