Our Mission

Caldwell Friends, Inc began in 1983, is a non-profit, and a one-to-one after school mentoring program, serving youth ages 7-14.  Our mission is to inspire, enrich, and enable at-risk youth to realize their full potential and motivate them toward positive life choices through one on one after school mentoring.  We are the only community youth program in the county, who serves elementary school aged children outside of school for no charge.

mentor gains best friend

"I really feel that Malia, my mentee, has gotten a chance to come out of her shell. This program has given her the opportunity to be in social situations that she normally would not have been put in. And I have gained a best friend from this experience. I love that.”

— Regan Tye, Mentor
