Y Wednesday Features New Youth Mentoring Program In Marquette County
Y Wednesday Update.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Today’s edition of Y Wednesday on The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike featured a closer look at a new program that mentors youth in our area.
Melissa DeMarse, Program Director of the “Reach & Rise” program talked about how the program works to partner area youth with mentors to develop the child’s skills and self esteem.
DeMarse said while this program is similar in nature to others, it has a stronger therapeutic side to it that works in conjunction with the Y’s focus on all aspects of wellness, including mental and social and not simply physical.
She also mentioned that the Marquette County YMCA is the only on in the State of Michigan that has this new program.
