SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE: Check out our annual Fill the Bus school supply drive. All donations go directly to the 42 schools in the Kent School District for students who need supplies to be successful. Details under the EVENTS tab.

DONATE:  Fund an organization that works. We help thousands of young people realize their potential, but many more need our services. Help us expand our reach and deepen our level of support. For every dollar you donate, $11.60 is returned to the community! You can donate via this website or mail a check to us at P.O. Box 62, Kent, WA 98035. All donations are tax deductible, as we are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.

VOLUNTEERING:

Be a MENTOR: Change a young life (or lives) for the better – Volunteer to be a Mentor! The single most important factor in whether a child makes it or not is the involvement of a caring adult. You can be that caring adult. We’re experts at recruiting, training and organizing mentors. Fill out the volunteer interest form and we will contact you about getting started!

Be a Leader in Your Community – Volunteer to be on a committee, help at an event or look into opportunities with our Board of Directors!

We are lucky to have the leadership and support of many generous individuals who donate their time on our Board of Directors, as event volunteers or as Committee members.  If you have talent or interest in any of the following areas and want to volunteer your time, fill out the volunteer interest form and we’ll contact you about the process!

Committees include Marketing, Communications, Resource Development, Finance and the Breakfast for the Kids.
