Utah Youth Mentor Project (UYMP) is a local non profit dedicated to easing the transition from foster care to independent living for youth aging out of foster care. UYMP matches a high risk youth with older, more mature mentors creating one to one friendships for a minimum of two years. There are many programs that help younger kids and adults, but UYMP is the only program that focuses on the 18-21 age range in mentoring.
UYMP is very active in the community and hosts activities monthly. This month UYMP is hosting a community concert on April 25, 2010 @ 6:00 pm located at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Six bands will donate their time and talent to help make this concert a success.
Other activities UYMP hosts include: Dingo Party (dinner + bingo), Kite Party (lunch and games at the park), Community service projects, Resume workshops, Life skills training, FAFSA workshops and many other activities throughout the year.
