On Friday, October 6th from 2:15pm-3:15pm we will hold our Youth Advocacy Program Group Mentor Meet-Up along with Project STAND at Carver High School (1591 Pennsylvania Avenue)!  All attending Project MI members must have completed Youth Advocacy Program (YAP) Orientation & Training.  If you did not attend the YAP Orientation & Training in person, but would like to attend any of our group mentoring sessions at Carver, please do the following:

  1. Watch the YAP Orientation & Training Videos here (Parts 1-7).
  2. Email pjmimemphis@gmail.com indicating what sessions you plan to attend (see below)  and swearing that you completed the above YAP Orientation & Training VideosPart 1-7; and
  3. Complete this Shelby County School Volunteer Application/Screening Form and bring it with you to the event, or email to pjmimemphis@gmail.com.

Group Mentoring Session Dates:

October 6, 2:15-3:15pm

October 27, 2:15-3:15pm

November 16, 10-2:30pm (“Man Up” Conference at Carver)

November 17, 2:15-3:15pm

November 30, 2:15-3:15pm

As reflected in the YAP orientation video, it is not necessary that group mentors attend each and every session.  However, our youth should see familiar faces in the sessions so we ask that our group mentors commit to at least three of the scheduled sessions.

Please email pjmimemphis@gmail.com with any questions.

Thank you for your continued interest in and dedication to our youth!
