Join us on the journey of
mentoring awesome kids.

Each summer, Global Youth Mentorship Initiative
(GYMI) holds summer sessions that help underprivileged
students gain access to mentorship and educational resources.

We are GYMI.

We are mentors from all over the world, dedicated with one pur-
pose: to bring inspiration and passion for learning to those who
are less privileged and help them expand their borders.


"Education is only the most fully conscious of the channels

whereby each generation influences the next."

- C.S.Lewis

What we do

Our trained mentors spearhead summer sessions focused on arts and technology in a one-to-one or small group setting, and follow up with their students for at least a year online.

Why do we do this?

Many students around the world do not have access to resources outside of the basic academic curriculum even though they are enthusiastic about learning more. GYMI tries to address this type of educational inequality by mobilizing talented and passionate undergraduates.

For the first wave of midterms of the school year, we hosted a study break in Lerner. We were able to hang out, kick it back and munch on some tasty Chinese food in the midst of exams and papers. We had a great time and hope to see everyone at our next study break!

This year, we were extremely successful during the Night Market: Autumn Moon. We collaborated with Chinese Students Club to transform our Low Steps into our own Night Market. We completely sold out our food! All of our profits will go towards the underprivileged primary and secondary school students in China thanks to the support of the Columbia community.
