We are excited to get started this month on our Spring Youth Advocacy Program 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 have not attended 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;
  3. Complete this Shelby County School Volunteer Application/Screening Form and bring it with you to the event, or email to pjmimemphis@gmail.com; and
  4. Attend at least two Group Mentor Session Dates:

February, 21st from 8:30am -9:45a

March 7th from 8:30am -9:45am

April 11th from 8:30am -9:45am

May 2nd  from 8:30am -9:45am

As noted 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 dedication to our youth!
