    Mentor Michigan was launched as a pilot program in 1999, by then-Attorney General Jennifer Granholm. In 2003, Granholm became Governor  and Mentor Michigan became a signature program of the Michigan Community Service Commission. In 2018, we re-launched as Mentor Michigan+ to add youth service as part of the equation. Now we are re-launching the monthly newsletter to provide valuable resources and information.
