Youth Mentor Program

What We Do

The Youth Mentoring Program helps refugee youth ages 15-24 reach their personal, academic, and career goals.

How It Works

Youth are paired with a mentor and meet weekly for at least one year.  Before starting the program, youth participants will meet with the Youth Mentoring Program Supervisor to discuss how this program can help them accomplish their goals.
