BECOME A MENTOROur Youth Education & Success (Y.E.S.) program teaches youth basic workforce development skills such as resume building, interview skills, time management, etc. Each youth in the program is paired up with an adult Mentor that helps the youth along the way by providing additional support and guidance. We ask our mentors for a one year commitment, although the schedule for this is flexible based on the youth/mentor relationship.
