For 30 years, Friends of the Children has matched paid, professional mentors, called Friends, with children who have big dreams. We walk alongside these youth from kindergarten through high school—12+ years, no matter what—in cities, towns, Indigenous communities, and rural areas across the country.

Join Simone Biles and sign the pledge below to learn how you can empower youth with big dreams who also face obstacles like foster care, poverty, housing insecurity, and more.

I pledge to be an advocate for youth in 2024 and to Put Children First. I commit to learning more about how I can empower youth in my community and join Friends of the Children in impacting generational change. Together, we can support children to dream big and to reach for those dreams.
