Program Mission

Youth Mentoring Program (YMP) strives to connect Cal Poly Humboldt student mentors with local elementary and middle school students who need extra support. YMP is unique in the sense that it offers personal one-on-one mentoring, rather than group services. By establishing strong, consistent, and constructive relationships YMP volunteers become positive role models, allies, and agents of change in our community.
