I Choose Me


The I Choose Me mentoring program at The METRO Center matches youth ages 8-17 with mentors and fellow mentees for an exciting project- and service-based mentoring experience. A typical mentoring group consists of 6 mentees and 2 mentors. Groups meet weekly and work on projects from community gardens to skateboard design. Mentoring groups also have the opportunity to participate in fun outings and our Celebrity Corner series.
