Do you remember someone that you considered an important person in your life as a child? Someone that inspired or shaped you for who you are today? Many of our youth today grow up missing that connection, that mentor.

Your support of the Wenatchee Valley YMCA Ment2B program will help change lives through mentoring youth right here in our valley. When asked, 1 in 3 children want a mentor. Those that have a mentor are 52% less likely to skip school, are 46% less likely than their peers to begin using drugs, trust their parents more and communicate better with them! Your contribution will help these young people with social, emotional, and academic growth through mentoring. Help guarantee that our kids have someone that cares. Show them that they ALL matter by making a donation today!
