Tacoma Mentorship Program Launch!

We are thrilled that this year we were able to officially launch our high school mentorship program in partnership with the Lakes High School football team in Lakewood, WA. Lakes High School was a natural starting partnership for us as Zach is an alumnus, and head coach Dave Miller shares our commitment to developing young student-athletes not just on the football field but as well-rounded men. The purpose of our mentorship program is to support students by teaching and demonstrating the important characteristics and values of community leaders. We strive to create a safe space in which students can discuss their lives, grow and set goals for themselves and learn from the wisdom and encouragement of older community mentors.
