Commitment to Y-WE
As a mentor, your consistent attendance is essential! Please check the dates of the program you are applying for to make sure you can attend most of the program. If you have questions about this, please contact us. If mentoring is too large a commitment at this time, consider becoming a Y-WE volunteer. Our many short-term volunteer opportunities also provide meaningful experiences working with the Y-WE community.

The health and safety of the Y-WE community is always a priority. In order to participate in programs you must agree to follow Y-WE's Covid safety guidelines, which will be shared with you before the program starts. A rapid test, or proof of vaccination or a negative PCR Covid test may be required for some activities and events. Y-WE is committed to remaining an inclusive space for all, and in those cases Y-WE will work to create options to participate virtually.
