About

Global Youth Mentorship Initiative (GYMI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was started in 2013 by co-founders Christine Wang and Shermin Luo. GYMI supplements traditionally regimented rural Chinese education with in-person and online mentorship focused on arts and technology. College students act as invaluable mentors to the middle school students and help foster their creativity, leadership and pragmatic skills. Through GYMI, young underprivileged students are empowered to pursue their dreams and their education.
