Empowering youths through transitions
M.Y Mindspace is a 3-month program which aims to prepare youths to thrive in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world through a mentorship journey and accessibility to resources.
2 key focuses:
- M.Y AIM - Mentorship program where youths develop a career action plan and debunk any limiting beliefs
- M.Y PATH - A program to provide support and guidance for youths in key areas relating to mental wellbeing and life transitions.
M.Y AIM is a collaboration between Metropolitan YMCA (MYMCA) and Asia Institute of Mentoring (AIM) that helps to bridge the gap between youths and their career aspirations through mentoring. We hope to support youths in their growth journey and see them discover themselves in doing what they love, loving what they do.
Monthly workshops are organized where industry professionals share about career preparation, planning and resilience strategies. The goal is to equip and motivate youths to develop their strengths and essential skills to secure employment of their choice through targeted training and motivational talks.
MYMCA leads positive community transformation with a special focus on children and youths. We do so by helping them to identify their aspirations and amplify their own efforts to reach the community.
Likewise, AIM believes that investment in the next generation is highly critical and is committed to do that through education and community outreach. It is our mission to create this mentoring movement and spread the benefits of mentoring everywhere and at scale.
Campus to corporate is a life-changing transformation, and while it is possible that you may go back to studying, it marks the beginning of adulting—a life transition that is exciting with a lot of changes!
Although millions of youngsters are getting trained by educational institutions everyday, corporate often complains that there are few industry-ready or job-ready talents available for jobs. Learn how to ease the transitions from academics to corporate life, through effective workplace communication. It is as much about who you’re talking to as it is about what you are saying, or not.

Looking back, it has truly been a fruitful and beneficial journey for me. My mentor (Daniel) has been a huge support and sounding board for me. He would address questions that I have pertaining to leadership and personal growth and share some perspective. All this advice allowed me to better navigate my life. In addition, he would not simply spoon feed me with solutions but ask questions for me to elucidate a solution that is most sustainable for me.
This mentoring programme also exposed me to different workshops such as how to set effective goals and on personal branding. I appreciate the organizers' time in organizing these webinars as well.
I highly encourage anyone who wishes to develop themselves to join this programme and I believe you will grow into a greater individual.
