Mentorship and Outreach are ongoing. Participants are assigned to mentors, or partner organizations, by request, to assist with the support he or she may need to be successful academically, and in any other area of their personal lives that they may be struggling with.
MMInc. Youth Advocates keep an open invitation to all participants for a confidential adult ear that will give the best possible guidance or a referral to a professional service to meet the individual's needs, including follow up. These services are open to all youth and not limited to MMInc. members.
In the past year the main issues this component has addressed were mostly academic; such as tutoring, redirecting into High School/registration, school transfers, internships and mentorship placement, GED and college/financial aid applications. We have also provided the referrals to legal assistance, health issues, and counseling services for the youths in need. Weekly activities are held at the Medgar Evers College Campus in Brooklyn, NY. We utilize spaces like LIU'S Kumble Theater, The Brooklyn Museum, Medgar Evers College, Mount Morris Dance Studios and Dungeon Beach Recording Studios. Major event locations are acquired through partnerships, rentals or donations.
