Mentees
New American students are referred to MINA by community organizations, NGOs, friends of MINA, and high school teachers.  A MINA mentee will typically fall into one of three categories:
(1) a refugee or immigrant student who is 18 or older and does not have a high school credential
(2) a refugee or immigrant student currently a senior in a U.S. high school
(3) a refugee or immigrant student with a foreign high school credential.
