The Karen Organization of Minnesota’s Youth Mentorship Program matches volunteers with refugee youth in St. Paul Public Schools in one-on-one relationships for an 8-12 month period during an academic year. The goal of this program is to provide refugee youth with someone who can offer friendship, support, and guidance with day-to-day issues as well as in planning for the future. Mentors and their mentees connect at least once a week and meet face to face at least bi-weekly participating in activities that they both enjoy. KOM staff also organize occasional activities to bring all mentors and mentees together. Mentors are a wonderful source of support for refugee youth as they adjust to life in a new culture and explore options for their future education and careers.

Current youth mentorship program year: October 2016 – May 2017
