Building Futures Mentoring Program
Building Futures Mentoring is a program created to address the mental health counseling needs of youth.
The YMCA mentoring program is geared for kids 6-14 and focuses on outcomes such as improving academic performance, personal social skills and relationships with authority figures.
Highly trained mentors meet weekly with mentees to discuss issues occurring in the youth's life. A key feature of the program is the inclusion of parents in the mentoring process, from matching their child to an appropriate mentor, to setting goals for the mentoring relationship.
