UFM Teen Mentoring Program

The UFM Teen Mentoring Program was started in 1997 as a way to offer a structured program of support and life skills to youth in grades 7-12. The goals of the project are to provide a safe, supportive and consistent environment for teens to learn positive life skills and to focus on primary prevention intervention activities. Volunteer mentors and students meet weekly after school from 3pm-5pm at UFM Community Learning Center and offsite locations. Activities are planned each week to provide guidance and build relationships through discussion, games, food and fun activities. This program wouldn’t be possible without our mentors and the students love getting to know people at K-State! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to me at tnpfeifer@ksu.edu.
