The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington’s Mentoring and Counseling programs offer therapeutic and supportive services to children and families. These programs provide assistance to our community’s most vulnerable members by providing valuable resources and impactful partnerships.


The Y provides mentoring matches through YMCA Youth & Family Services in Montgomery County, MD.  The program collaborates with Montgomery County Public Schools, the Department of Health & Human Services, the Department of Juvenile Services, and the Circuit Court of Montgomery County to match court-involved youth with adult mentors.

For more information or to become a mentor, call Ottoniel Perez at (301) 587-5700 x2574 or email.


We also provide counseling for individuals, families, and groups through YMCA Youth & Family Services in Montgomery County, MD. Our master’s level counselors help build on existing strengths while teaching new ways to cope with challenges, which may include marital or child-parent conflicts, anxiety, and depression.
