Become a male role model today!
The youth in our Dare to Dream program need the wisdom, advice, encouragement, and community that mentors can provide. As a male mentor, you will be providing guidance through developmental milestones. This is very much needed for young male youths who need a "big brother" role model in their life. The goal is for youth to be engaged and to feel supported and equipped to navigate life.
A mentor commits to meeting with the youth every other week to set goals and help them achieve their dreams. These relationships will hopefully last a lifetime, but the program is a year commitment. Mentors matched with a high school student are strongly encouraged to stay with the youth until high school graduation.
Some activities that male mentorships can do are play basketball, designing clothes, teaching them how to drive, play video games, tutoring, coaching, going to the museum, getting ice cream, hiking, etc.
We tell mentors that the simple act of telling their youth "I believe in you," "You are special," and "You are going to do great things" can change their path completely.

To walk alongside children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.

Our organization's trauma-informed programs were created to heal and empower children by increasing their stability, surrounding them with healthy relationships and wrapping them in community. Our volunteers are everyday people who are matched with foster families and youth based on zip code and compatibility. We believe that the power of love and community can make a lasting difference for children in foster care.
