Our goal is to provide 3,000 additional children with compassionate mentors by 2025.

We are a small non-profit organization in Hawai'i that facilitates partnerships between public elementary schools and neighborhood churches to provide mentors with highly vulnerable children. Since 2003, we have helped over 3,000 children. 

Many of our students face challenges such as broken homes, non-English speaking families, incarcerated parents, and even homelessness. Many are simply neglected by peers and their families. The children selected by the schools don't always have behavioral or academic problems; sometimes they just need the personal attention that an adult mentor can provide.

Mentoring is a "structured and trusting relationship that brings young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support, and encouragement" (; our mentors commit to meeting with their students for one hour, once a week, on their school campus.  Although they are often church members, the mentors respect church-state separation -- it is understood that no one will impose a religious agenda.


We are supported by the state of Hawaii Department of Education Superintendent, and we received the Partnership in Education Award in 2007.
