Youth Empowerment & Support.
The YES Mentoring Program was created for youth ages 12- 18 years of age who are in need of support at school and home. The program establishes a collaborative relationship between youth, and their mentors, while supporting youth in academics, life skills, and personal growth. Middle and high school-aged youth from the Metro Atlanta area are matched one-to-one with professional millennial mentors.
As an immediate support system for the youth, mentors are encouraged to speak as often as possible. Mentors will engage youth on topics such as, alcohol and drug prevention, conflict resolution, communication skills, preteen/teen issues, life skills, education, employment, and finance. Recreational activities, and educational workshops will be planned regularly throughout the semester.
