I would like to offer refining services to new players who are training for mining and refining without them having to join a specific mining corp. The service would allow for better profits by charging only a small percent of the raw materials in exchange for fully efficient refining at select refineries. Instead of paying the refinery tax and losing through unrecoverable material, miners would pay me 1-2% of the raw material in exchange for 100% efficient refining for the rest. Is there a way to offer this that is secure for the miner? Miners won't simply hand over their material for me to refine without some assurance that they will get what they "pay" for. Ideas please.

figure out a good way of taking their ore, and returning minerals.

* trade ISK for their ore, then sell mins back at same price
* trade already refined mins for their ore
* etc

This. Keep a stockpile of minerals, and when someone wants their ore refined, just trade his ore for your stockpiled minerals. Then refine the ore and return it to your stockpile. If someone wants to refine more ore than you have minerals in your stockpile, simply repeat the process several times (as you always get your minerals back).

You can streamline that into an item exchange contract. You put the "exchange rates" in your bio so people contract you ore and asking for minerals in return based on those rates. You simply log in, check the contract to see if it adds up and then simply accept it, once you completed all contracts you refine the new minerals and wait for the nest contract.

You will ofcourse have to have to minerals first but that shouldn't be a big issue once you've started off.
