Youth Mentoring Initiative is a Community Fueled and Community Funded Organization
It’s an Economic Investment
Support from local businesses help support the Youth Mentoring initiative. Fishers is a successful community due to low crime and high resident engagement. From a business perspective, it makes sense to continue equipping our Youth with the developmental assets they need to keep Fishers on the track towards greatness.
