Mentor Training

Welcome to the Hoosier Youth Challenge Academy (HYCA) Mentor Training.

HYCA would like to thank you for volunteering to be a Mentor.  Please know that you play a vital role in the success of this program and in the life of the youth you mentor.  We thank you for your time and commitment. We also want you to understand that we are here to assist you should the need arise – you are not alone.  

The Mentor Training/Match Session is a day to discuss the Hoosier Youth Challenge Academy program and begin building the path toward the cadet's future. The training/ceremony is mandatory for all mentors to attend in order to match with you cadets.  No guests are allowed (no spouses, children, parents, etc.).
