Marion Mentors 21 Program (MM21)

The Marion Mentors 21 Program is an organization powered by the collaborative efforts of the Marion Family YMCA, the Marion City Schools, and Nucor Steel. The purpose of the organization is to support the development of one-to-one relationships between a volunteer adult role model and a student. This unique relationship provides support and encouragement, and can help a young person develop the academic, social, personal, and leadership skills to foster success in their future. The MM 21 Program is an effective way to improve the student’s self-esteem, expand their vision of opportunities, and reinforce the Leader In Me concepts presented to every student in the Marion City Schools.

MM21 is currently recruiting adult Mentors.  Apply online at

By volunteering as a MENTOR you can help a young person develop the academic, social, personal, and leadership skills to foster SUCCESS in their future!  Become a MENTOR today!
