"Give Me Five"

GM5 provides mentoring for students in grades 5-8 during weekly group meetings at Milaca High School. We welcome students that want to learn how to make a difference in our community, practice social skills, and make new friends. Students must be referred to this program by parents or school staff. Our mentors come from many backgrounds and experiences and provide leadership and group mentoring to our participants that will last a lifetime. Students and mentors enjoy many activities together such as:
 
  • Cooking Meals
  • Playing Games
  • Field Trips
  • Making Projects
  • Fundraising
  • Community Service Opportunities such as planting trees
  • Monthly visits to the Elim Home
  • Much More...
