What We Believe

Our Mission, Vision, and Values are important to us. They are critical in aligning our team members, parents, students, and other stakeholders towards the lasting impact we will make in this world.

Our Mission

To fuel the quality and quantity of mentoring relationships for North Carolina’s young people while working to address the systemic barriers that they face on a daily basis.

Our Vision

Through positive youth-adult relationships, mentoring has the power to disrupt the status quo and build a safer, smarter, and more socially conscious world.

Our Values

  1. Relationships: Everyone is valuable. How we cultivate, engage, and maintain relationships matters. We are committed to taking an active role in contributing to the success of young people so they in turn become influential leaders. We believe everyone has the right to exist.
  2. Growth: We will always strive for excellence and encourage others to reach their fullest potential. There is always more we can do to enrich ourselves and the lives of others. We choose to be conscious and guided by the clearest understandings that we are capable.
  3. Living Purposefully: We believe that everyone is born with what it takes to make a difference in this world. To that end, we will use our unique gifts and talents in the pursuit of the common good and encourage others to do the same. We will take risks and be bold. We will honor ourselves and others by showing up authentically. We persist through challenging situations.

As we continue to grow as an organization, it has become more and more important to explicitly define how we develop our culture, our brand, and our strategies. We strive to embody our Mission, Vision, and Values in all that we do.
