Thank you for your interest in becoming a mentor with Y-WE! Mentors support youth participants through a collaborative group mentorship model, help with minor logistics like tracking attendance as youth arrive, and play an important part in stewarding a culture of belonging and empowerment. You can learn more here.

It will also ask which programs you are interested in and available for- to see program descriptions, as well as dates and times, please visit the programs page of the website.
