Our Mission

Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Investing in the Power of Mentoring

Now more than ever, we need you to invest in the power and impact of mentoring.

Your investment in this work is…

MORE than a gift – it is a lifeline for someone.

MORE than a donation – it provides a safe space for children to be who they are.

MORE than a contribution – it helps youth know that they have talent, perspective, and gifts of their own to develop and share with the world.

Our Partnership with United Way

We are a proud Partner Program of United Way of Portage County and Marshfield Area United Way.
