YPMP is a non-profit youth mentoring program dedicated to building relationships between high school students and mentors in order to enhance social development, provide positive role models, and give students a caring and supportive outlet. We believe that through mentoring we can help our student mentees to set and reach their academic and personal goals and also establish a significant and tangible impact on their social development.

All YPMP mentors are trained by the New York City Board of Education. Mentors meet with their respective mentees twice per month for approximately three hours per meeting including group functions. The goal of our activities is to introduce our mentees to the many cultural and educational opportunities that New York City has to offer and by experiencing them together to build a lasting friendship between mentor and mentee.

YPMP is partnering with The High School of Economics and Finance, a public school with approximately 750 students from all five boroughs of New York City. Economics & Finance is located in lower Manhattan at 100 Trinity Place. We are currently mentoring 40 students and are extremely proud to be working with such an impressive group of young people.
