Member Agencies:


Grigg-Lewis Foundation

The Grigg-Lewis Foundation is a long standing benefactor to Youth Mentoring Services of Niagara County.  Each year the Foundation grants YMSNC Core Group Funding to assist in providing programming and services to in-risk children and youth who reside in Eastern Niagara County.

Each summer the Workership Program provides funding for 2 summer  interns to work at YMS.  As Program Assistants, they staff the summer adventure program and provide match support.

First Niagara Foundation

YMS Niagara County was awarded $15,000 for 2016 through Mentoring Matters.  These funds made it possible to continue our site based mentoring initiative in collaboration with Niagara County after-school programs, and to offer professionally supervised  community based matched friendships with screened and trained adult volunteer mentor/role models to more children county wide.

Niagara Area Foundation

NAF’s educational design ignites students’  passion for learning and gives businesses the opportunity to shape America’s future workforce by transforming the learning environment to include STEM infused industry-specific curricula and work-based learning experiences, including internships.
