Safe Yakima Valley Mentoring Program

Positive youth development research has long demonstrated that elevated-risk youth benefit from mentoring. Our mentoring program matches responsible and caring mentors with elevated-risk mentees/youth ages 10-17 in Yakima County.  Mentoring provides youth with mentors who can provide support, guidance, and opportunities to help youth meet their goals and succeed in life!
