Welcome to POWER 4 Youth!
POWER 4 Youth is a 501(c)(3) serving adolescents and teens in the Long Beach, CA area since 1999. Over 300 at-risk, primarily low-income students have been served by volunteer mentors through POWER 4 Youth.
We believe that all youth deserve individual guidance from a caring, knowledgeable adult to help them achieve their potential (in school and in the larger society).
Our Mission: POWER 4 Youth provides academic mentoring for struggling students by connecting youth with caring adult mentors. POWER 4 Youth helps at-risk middle and high school youth to do better in school by addressing the issues that are keeping the students from doing their best, and motivating them to be good citizens of the community.
