ABOUT US


About Our Organization

Friends for Youth was established in 1979 by a group of local community leaders, including the Director of Juvenile Probation, who recognized that many at-risk children did not fit the focus of other available youth services. Since our inception, we have worked to support children who would otherwise go unserved, with an emphasis on positive youth development, academic achievement, health and wellness, prevention services, and critical skills for future self-sufficiency. We have helped over 2,000 youth-in-need reach their full potential. Our 90% success rate of creating long-term mentoring matches is far above the 33-37% national average. Studies have consistently shown that youth in our program improve their motivation and school performance, demonstrate increased self-esteem and resiliency, and rarely have future involvement with the Juvenile Justice System.

Our Programs

We first established our Mentoring Services program, providing direct one-to-one, community-based mentoring services to low-income, at-risk youth ages 8 to 17 in San Mateo County. Youth are referred by teachers, probation officers, and other youth professionals as being “at-risk” of not reaching their full potential. In 2016, in response to substantial need brought to us by Sequoia High School, we implemented a school-based group mentoring program called ConnectSHS. Incoming freshmen exhibiting academic challenges, behavioral and mental health issues, financial poverty, and social isolation are identified by the school and served through group mentoring sessions on campus. Learn more about our programs.
