About Friends of the Children Los Angeles

Friends of the Children is an international nonprofit organization that selects and invites youth – all of whom have unique talents, interests and dreams, and face multiple systemic obstacles – to be paired with a paid, professional mentor called a Friend. They hire and train Friends to support the youth from as early as age 4 through high school graduation – 12+ years, no matter what.

The nonprofit has revolutionized the youth mentoring field by creating the first and only long-term professional mentoring program in the country. They are experts in building sustained and nurturing relationships with youth.
