The Building Futures Mentoring Program provides 1-to-1 therapeutic mentoring to at-risk youth ages 6 - 18 in the Bay Area. Mentors meet with their mentees once each week for an average of 2 hours over a 1-year period. We help children develop tools to cope with issues such as low self-esteem, family and peer conflicts, academic underachievement and decision-making skills. Youth are referred from schools and other YMCA programs.
Building Futures provides the most comprehensive training of any mentoring program in the Bay Area, preparing mentors to work successfully with at-risk youth by developing relationship-building skills, exploring issues facing at-risk youth, and strategies to handle difficult situations.
Mission: To help at-risk children overcome personal, social and family challenges through a positive adult-child relationship.
