What is Youth Mentoring of the Southern Tier?
Youth Mentoring of the Southern Tier (YMST) is a site-based mentoring program that meets once a week at a designated location (sites include Corning, Elmira, and Allegany County). Mentors are thoroughly screened including background and reference checks. During each hour long program, Mentors and Mentees participate in fun and enriching activities facilitated by the Site Coordinators.
