Our community based mentoring approach gives boys a variety of positive male role models who show up consistently, tell the truth about their struggles as men, ask the boys what kind of man they want to be, praise them for their gifts, support them when they mess up, and encourage them to become the man they want to be.
Parents want to raise their kids well. They want to do right by them, and create an environment where they can thrive and go out into the world with confidence and all they need to handle the complexities of life. Most parents, though, wonder and worry about how best to treat their kids, especially teenagers. They struggle to know how to best care, support, encourage, and develop their kids. Every kid is different. On top of that, you add the demands of school, the pressures of competitive college admissions, social media, temptations to vaping, identifying their career aspirations, financial responsibility, driving, heartbreak, and the influences of friends. The mission of The YouSchool is to partner with school leaders, parents, and students to create roadmaps for students to build meaningful lives.
Herren Project was founded in 2011 by former professional basketball player, Chris Herren, with the goal of helping others navigate the road to recovery from the disease of addiction.

You and your family can participate in Wellness Week with Herren - March 2-7, 2020.

Tobacco Free CA
In November 1988, California voters approved the Tobacco Tax and Health Protection Act through the passage of Proposition 99, which added a 25-cent tax to each pack of cigarettes. A portion of the tax funds the California Tobacco Control Program (CTCP), the longest-running comprehensive tobacco control program in the nation.
CTCP’s mission is to improve the health of all Californians by reducing illness and premature death from the use of tobacco products.
We take on things that impact our lives and communities, and make big change in the world. While we've always been (and still are!) about exposing big tobaccos lies and manipulation, we also have something to say about another health crisis: The opioid epidemic (and, as always, the research and receipts are fueling our message.)
