2023 Impact

A community rooted in strong relationships for young people will yield a brighter future for all of us.  As the lead convener of mentoring in our region, we take a holistic approach to centering relationships across every aspect of youth support. 

We provide training, technical assistance and resources free of charge to eliminate barriers to access and to ensure that all young people have caring adults in their lives who are equipped to help them feel safe, supported and empowered to dream big. 

We know that caring adult connections can change the trajectory of a young person’s life and we’re working hard each and every day to make sure that all kids know the power of having a mentor.
