Youth Mentors who deliver quality work for at least 6 months will receive a letter of recommendation to help you apply to college or apply to your next job as well as free access to our full library of lessons on leadership, personal growth, and communication, and first preference if you choose to come back and work for LeadYouth after you graduate.
