MIKE Program focuses on engaging youth as the solution for a healthier society.
MIKE Program is a Portland, Oregon nonprofit organization founded in 2003.
MIKE changes the direction of health outcomes for youth, their friends, their families and their communities. MIKE equips young people with the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions about their health and behaviors. Through education, mentorship and community outreach, MIKE guides young people through a comprehensive, hands-on health science education training, impacting their lives and creating a ripple effect for those around them.
Our evaluations demonstrate that young people enrolled in MIKE make significant positive changes in their attitude toward nutrition and exercise. They feel prepared to advocate for similar changes in their immediate peer groups, with their families and in the broader community. Thanks to our caring mentors and supporters, MIKE is setting youth towards academic and career success.
