Unni-Hyung Mentoring Program

KAFSC’s Unni-Hyung Mentoring Program (UHMP) is a community-based program dedicated to empower youth ages 13 –19 in a one-to-one relationship, to promote self-awareness, provide a supportive social network, and help the youth develop their bicultural identity, and to see new possibilities in life through a mutual relationship. Mentors commit to the program for one year minimum, and meet with mentees consistently 6 hours per month to foster an impactful effect in mentees’ lives.

“If I hadn’t met Ellen, I don’t think I’d be as confident in making decisions now… I would encourage anyone looking for a mentor to sign up. They help you see and experience a lot.” -So Jung Lee, former UHMP mentee

“This relationship became so much more than I ever anticipated… As much as you can say I’ve done for So Jung, she’s done so much for me. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.”-Ellen Kim, former UHMP mentor 


  1. During a one year-long commitment, mentoring pairs meet for a minimum of six hours per month (In-person or vitual).
  2. Mentors keep a reflective log for the meetings they had for the month.
  3. Mentors attend an interview and an orientation/training session as part of the application.
  4. Mentors undergo a fingerprint background check prior to being paired.
  5. Mentoring pairs maintain a consistent, communicative, professional relationship with the Youth Program Coordinator.
