MITS (Mentors In Training) is a program where youth can come and learn leadership skills, do activities, and get to be a part of something bigger. The MITS are known as the youth volunteers during our drop in nights and this allows them to be a shining face during programming. At the MAT, we encourage the MITS to be role models for the other youth, as well as get a chance to volunteer during the nights activities by stepping into more of a leadership role! Additionally, plenty of opportunities for strengthening public speaking skills and opportunities to attend more great things the Boys and Girls Club offers.
Meet every Tuesday before drop-in upstairs at 6:00pm - 7:00pm!
During MITS we do awesome things like play games, have discussions about life, work on leadership activities, and much more! The MITS are also given the opportunity to plan and lead drop-in nights here at the MAT. We aim to create a safe space for youth to learn more about themselves and connect them with a mentor to help facilitate their transition into a strong leader.
