Mission Statement

Boarding House Mentors is a California-based 501c-3 nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming young lives through surfing. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization.

Description

Boarding House Mentors introduces at-risk youth to the exhilaration of surfing in order to broaden their life experiences with positive, healthy, non-competitive activities that may have a significant impact on their self-image and self-confidence. Boarding House Mentors youth learn surfing in a fun, supportive environment under the supervision of experienced surfers who share the positive impact that boards sports have had on their lives. We hope to foster a love of surfing so that both youth and their mentors will adopt these sports as a popular activity that they can pursue on their own. Ultimately, it is our hope that youth will find that surfing is a healthy sport that they can enjoy for a lifetime that will open new opportunities beyond their usual environment.

Boarding House Mentors Pass The Stoke Surf Program is amazing! Seeing the youth transform throughout the season is so awesome. They come in shy and even scared to go surfing because of "sharks" but after the first hour they are smiling and opening up to you.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
