Schools We Are Connecting Students with Mentors
YMI (Youth Mentoring Initiative) is a school-based mentoring program, partnered with the Hamilton Southeastern School District that seeks to empower youth through quality mentoring relationships. Mentors meet one-on-one each week with their mentee to develop a relationship, promote positive and healthy life choices, and reduce risks associated with anti-social behavior and social isolation.
YMI mentors over 215 students in grades 5-12 in HSE Schools. Any student can benefit from another caring adult in their life!
Donate to YMI
All YMI mentoring programs are free for students and their families. As a 501©(3) organization, our mission is fueled by generous support from grants, corporate support, and individuals who believe in the power of mentoring. Be part of the change!
Events are a great way to stay connected to YMI and support the youth in our community. From trainings to mentor connection events to fundraisers, there’s something for everyone!
