What is the commitment of a YMI mentor?
The commitment depends on the mentor program, but most programs require a commitment of one school year.
I have never worked with kids before. Am I still qualified?
Yes. Any caring adult who desires to see teens succeed and reach their full potential and possess the 5 YMI Mentor Characteristics is qualified to become a YMI mentor.
Would I mentor one on one?
Yes, however some of our school programs are designed for mentors to meet with students in a small group setting.
How are mentors matched with their mentees?
Mentors and mentees fill out a Life and Interest Inventory. Similar life experiences, hobbies, and personal character traits are used to match a mentor with a student.
Will I be matched with students of the opposite sex?
Unless requested, some mentors will have both genders in their mentor group. A mentor is never matched with or allowed to mentor a single student of the opposite sex.

“YMI a Mentor? Because I had a mentor after high school whom I kept in contact with until she passed away in 2010. I hope I can impact someones life and be their mentor for life.” – Shellie Law, Regional Sales Manager – Crown Moving & Storage
