Who Are We?
We help youth of all backgrounds throughout the Coachella Valley reach their potential through one-to-one mentoring relationships. We offer two core programs: Community-based and Site-based mentoring. Matches in the Community-based program participate in activities throughout the area such as going to ballgames, the park, movies and museums. Volunteers in the Site-based programs meet their Little at a specific site located in either La Quinta, Desert Hot Springs, Indio and Coachella. In both programs, the one-to-one matches spend between 4 to 8 hours per month together in their mentoring relationship. Volunteers are screened and once accepted, are matched to a youth according to preferences like age, geographic proximity and hobbies and interests. On going support by professionally-trained staff is provided for the duration of the match.

Our Mission
Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better. Our vision is that all children achieve success in life. To accomplish this vision and mission, we partner with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving: •Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships •Avoidance of risky behaviors •Educational success
