Florida YMCA Youth In Government

High School Mentor

The principle of servant leadership is a core component of our mission at the Florida YMCA Youth In Government, and the strongest example of putting this principle into practice is the YIG High School Mentor program.

The High School Mentor program provides Sr. YIG delegates (must be at least a sophomore in high school) with the opportunity to facilitate, mentor, and coordinate local middle school students in our Jr. YIG program (Grades 6 -8).

By connecting Jr. YIG students with Sr. YIG mentors, our middle students benefit from the knowledge, experience and enthusiasm of veteran high school participants while mentors are offered a unique opportunity to grow as servant leaders by acquiring crucial life and professional skills like facilitation, programming, and mentoring.
