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. Our cardinal activity is youth mentorship/youth empowerment. The program works collaboratively with teachers and program managers to place volunteer mentors with youth groups in schools and agencies. The program is designed to equip youth to apply healthy behaviors and to train peers, family, and their communities in healthy behaviors through project-based service learning. MIKE Program is consistent with principles of positive youth development.
