our mission: To promote the healthy development of children, families and individuals through counseling, mentoring and support programs.


Our community-based Mentoring program is available for youth aged 4-17 in South Lake Tahoe, Alpine County, and Douglas County. Youth are matched one-to-one with a caring adult mentor who will offer positive development, opportunities for expression, structure and guidance. Fun activities available throughout the year for mentors and mentees, including: skiing and snowboarding, beach days, movie nights, bowling, and much more.

We are currently accepting applications for both adult mentors and for youth  who would like a mentor. Both applications can be found on our on the links below. We invite you to come and be a part of something wonderful! We are available and eager to talk to you and answer any questions.
