Mentors are the heart and soul of GYMI. Each summer session usually consists of a cohort of 10-20 mentors. Along with a session coordinator, mentors will live, eat and collaborate together to make a sustainable impact. Mentors will each be assigned to one or two students to build a trusting relationship with and are encouraged to teach unconventional skills they might possess, such as drawing, singing and dancing.
Join efforts with GYMI to bring changes with a resonating impact.
There are several ways to help our cause.
GYMI truly could not do what we do without our incredible board members, and we are grateful for their contributions of time and expertise.

No matter where you live, or what your expertise is, GYMI has a place for you! We are looking for individuals with all different interests and skill-sets to lend a hand. Are you good at marketing? Are you a pro at design or computer software? Are you into education? We would love to have dedicated, engaged and qualified individuals like you on board!
As a 501(c)(3) public charity, our nonprofit organization relies on the support of generous allies like you to keep our program running successfully!
Your generous tax-deductible donation will help support young students in their educational journey, and ensure each student has access to the best possible resources. Donations have gone to providing program materials like art supplies, musical instruments, and even Arduino protoboards that allow students to learn basic programming skills.
Global Youth Mentorship Initiative is greatly indebted to our sponsors that have made a philanthropic investment to support of our work and organization.
GYMI started as a student organization and we could not come this far without our incredible board of advisor. Our board of advisors composes of professionals and experts from various fields who provide real work know-hows and guidance to our volunteers. They advise volunteers at every step along the way, without directing them with prescribed instructions or action steps. With their support, our volunteers are able to learn along the way and discover success as socially-responsible leaders. GYMI advisors are deeply engaged in our mission, and are the front line of interaction with operation board. Please send us an email if you are interested!
