About Us

Mentors Change Futures.

Who We Are

Catalyst Mentoring is a vision to invest in our city’s youth to invest in our city’s future through the power of mentoring. No one gets to the finish line of life having done something great without the support and guidance of great mentors along the way. Unfortunately, for many kids in our community, there is no one showing up in their story and left to their own problem-solving abilities our youth are repeating the stories that they are seeing with their lives.

Our community is facing challenges that are shocking when you look at the statistics. We have double the state average in ACE’S scores (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and double the national average. This means the youth of our community are facing tremendous hurdles, alone. These hurdles leave our youth more likely to use drugs, solve their problems with physical violence, and drop out of school. Add in the Carr fire and a year full of Pandemic and our kids are being set up for disaster.

We envision a brighter future for our community than these statistics report because we KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that there is something we can do to change the trajectory of a young person’s life, and that is for them to have a mentor.
