FI.G.G is a nonprofit mentoring organization that empowers youth to build better future(s), one child at a time. Our program is designed to create positive outcomes for the youth we serve in academic achievement social and emotional well-being, and the development of independent skills.
Mentoring ensures that young people have at least one consistent, trusting adult in their lives to help them navigate through daily challenges, make positive decisions, feel cared for, and know that someone is cheering them on. Ultimately, mentoring works because it gives young people the opportunity to GROW and THRIVE under the guidance of an adult to youth relationship.
