Youth Mentoring Initiative

Youth Mentoring Initiative


YMI provides mentoring for students by building and sustaining a mentoring community with the highest level of service, integrity, encouragement, and empathy. Most importantly, we strive to continue cultivating our community by investing in our Youth.


YMI has been serving Hamilton Southeastern Schools (HSE) and the Fishers community since 2008. YMI partners with HSE schools to come alongside counselors, teachers and parents by providing another caring adult to support and encourage the success of each student. YMI achieves this through volunteer mentors that mentor once a week during the school day. Mentors meet one-on-one with students and provide them with a caring and consistent presence in their lives; become a reliable friend and someone that they can count on in their lives.
