The South Bay Mentoring Coalition Project


This project aims to address poverty and inequity by ensuring all young people have the supportive, personal relationships they need to thrive. We believe the best way to change the odds for young people is to be in steady relationship with them. 

The Idea

We have a simple goal. 


We connect well-trained, committed adults with young people from the South Bay seeking guidance and support. We are lucky to have a dozen agencies offering well-developed mentoring services to young people and volunteers. We know mentoring works, it always has. People caring about people is the only sustainable intervention. 


In the South Bay Area (Santa Clara County + the Fremont area) there are currently more than 500 young people on waiting lists for Mentors. These are young people seeking support and guidance; we want to make sure they get it.
