Mission Statement

Creating quality mentoring relationships for youth who need them most.

Description

Friends for Youth creates and cultivates friendships between at-risk youth and adult volunteers who serve as positive role models, helping kids to grow into responsible, productive members of the community. We seek caring adults who would like to make a difference in the lives of young people ages 8-17. Volunteers spend at least three hours each week with a child for a year, doing fun activities they both enjoy. Friends for Youth staff organize three to four group activities each month such as going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, museums, plays, or baseball games. Friends for Youth's Program Coordinators provide training and ongoing, individualized support to the volunteers to ensure the success of each friendship.
