What We Do



To ensure that children grow up with Love, Hope, and Opportunity.

Youth Mentoring

(grades K-12, ages typically 5-17)
Young people, ages 5-17, are served in various mentoring programs designed to: (1) pair children and teens in 1:1 relationships with Big Brothers, Big Sisters and mentors and; (2) bring together other supporting adults including parents, teachers, business and faith based partners to provide additional support and assistance.


Young Adult Mentoring

(ages 18-25)
We support young people after high school and through age 25. We work to ensure that they have a plan in place and a goal to accomplish – whether it is enrolling in college, enlisting in the military or becoming gainfully employed. Our ultimate goal is to help them secure a living wage job.


Core Values and Beliefs

We put young people first and always act in their best interest.

We are accountable, adaptable and determined; holding ourselves to the highest standards, focusing on impact and leading in innovation.

We welcome everyone and build trusting and enduring relationships among all.

And because the future of our region and country rests squarely on the shoulders of youth today, we act boldly.
