Young Minds Mentoring Initiative
YMMI provides one on one mentoring services to youth 16-18 years of age in Bernalillo,Sandoval, Valencia, and Torrance counties.
YMMI focuses on Academic Success, Health & Wellness and Life Skills. Participants, who are involved in work experience, are paired with mentors who help them with soft and foundational skills, healthy lifestyle choices, education and workforce development, entrepreneurial skills and post-secondary transitional activities (FASFA, Career Explorations, College Applications).
Mentors will engage mentees in college preparation and utilize Individual Mentoring Plans to help mentees set goals for their future career paths.
