Our Mission

Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Our Vision

All youth achieve their full potential.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) are integral parts of our values and mission. We recognize, affirm, and celebrate the diverse backgrounds, lives, and experiences of all our stakeholders, including youth, families, donors, volunteers, and staff. In the workplace, we foster an environment where all people can be their best selves. We affirm that every person [regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, gender expression, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation, marital or veteran status] has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We strive to realize the full potential that is within all of us by ensuring that all voices and perspectives are heard and honored.

Give Tuesday Mentor Matters


More than ever before, we all can relate to the sense of uncertainty that everyone is feeling. Youth today are greatly impacted by this unpredictability in addition to the everyday challenges of growing up.
This is why mentoring matters. Donate before the end of the year to create more lasting friendships like Nadale and Joe’s.
