Welcome to Mike Program
MIKE Program’s vision is all people meeting their potential of vibrant good health, participating as citizens of a vibrant, strong society. MIKE is a health science education enrichment program for high school teens. As a public health initiative, we are connecting the paths to health by mobilizing upstream methods to promote overall health and healthy kidneys for teens, their families, their friends, and their communities. MIKE is a recognized High Quality Mentoring Program by the Institute for Youth Success (formerly Oregon Mentors).
