Through the Youth Advocates for Mentoring (YAM) program, MENTOR will train 12 young leaders on advocacy, policy, and grassroots organizing skills in order to create positive change in their communities and nation. MENTOR believes that young people must be at the forefront of addressing systemic issues and that this comprehensive training program will provide young people the real life skills they need to communicate with elected officials, address issues in their communities, empower their peers into action, and advocate for the power of mentoring. MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership is a non-partisan organization that seeks to fuel the quantity and quality of mentoring relationships for America’s young people and to close the mentoring gap.
