How you helpVolunteers help us implement our school-to-career intervention programs, grounded in the principles of personal, academic and professional development.
About usMentor2Youth is committed to impacting the futures of disadvantaged youth throughout Southeast Michigan by supporting them holistically through each phase of their lives. A 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2011, Mentor2Youth is based on a graduate research project conducted by a Michigan State University student that focused on the effects an educational mentoring program had on students’ school performance and personal behavior. Working with several middle school boys, these students were provided with school supplies, academic resources, and a voice in what they thought was most important to learn about. A focus was placed on academic comprehension and life-skills development with these students.
