Message from our ED

As we fulfill our work, MENTOR California seeks to create a culture of thriving for the state’s young people, one caring relationship at a time. Building this culture through our values will allow us to invest in our community in a way that allows all members of the mentoring community to feel inspired for change, ignited for our youth and informed by our work. Through our capacity building and advocacy efforts, we envision a time when mentoring is an on-going and central part of state discussions related to youth and is adopted in all school-wide, community-based and statewide strategic plans. We are working to ensure that all young people have someone they can call a mentor.
