Miles Of Music 5k

Miles Of Music 5k On Sunday, February 19, 2019, Youth Mentoring & KIIS FM will welcome participants at the Miles Of Music 5K Fundraiser at Griffith Park! The Mission of Youth Mentoring is to awaken at-risk youth to their power, unique gifts and purpose by matching them with caring adult mentors and placing that match within a structured group dynamic that provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood.
(3)

Our Vision is of a community in which young people are truly seen and not just watched, where society understands and accepts its responsibility in meeting the needs of all young people, and where young people bring their gifts back into their communities as productive members of society. On Sunday, January 14, 2018 Youth Mentoring & KIIS FM will welcome sponsors and participants at the 4th Annual Miles Of Music 5K Fun Run at CBS Studios in Studio City, CA.

Mission: The Mission of Youth Mentoring Connection (YMC) is to awaken at-risk youth to their power, unique gifts and purpose by matching them with caring adult mentors and placing that “match” within a structured group dynamic that provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood. We further seek to awaken society to the needs, promise and value of this overlooked population. Our Vision is of a community where young people are truly seen and not just watched, where society understands and accepts its responsibility in meeting the needs of all young people, and where young people bring their gifts back into their communities as productive members of society.

Off to Sacramento!

YMC was recently invited to be panelists to discuss the Youth Reinvestment Fund. Tony, our founder alongside Cintia and Giovanni represented us and did not disappoint!

Tony spoke on the importance of “sawubona"... seeing youth for who they are and what they bring though our “Gift Centered Approach.”
Cintia gave testimony about YMC finding her at a time she could have gone in a very bad direction. She joined our mentoring program, ended up graduating college and joining the LAPD.
Gio spoke about looking down the barrel of a police rifle at a very young age. He said “YMC saved my life”. Then he spoke about his mentor who helped him flip his life around through surfing; weighing almost 300 Pounds at 12 years and then losing 120 pounds because of his guidance.

Here are a few pics. We're proud of them!

This is a really great and fun event for a REALLY GREAT CAUSE. Come on out and support the underserved youth of the LA Area!!! I hope to see many of you there!
Will it still go on even in the rain?
Why was the race so short? It definitely wasn't a 5K. My Garmin clocked in at 4 kilometers, and I asked other participants and they said they only ran 2.5 miles. :/
Join us at the 4th Annual Miles of Music 5k!!!
Is there a finisher medal included for this race?
