Be alive. Be strong. Be happy.

Zalani Foundation

Welcome!

'Cultivate a healthy body, mind and spirit'

Over time, Zalani Foundation will create a learning environment that will be an invaluable resource to young people, aspiring mentors and the community at large.

Hope For The Future

Zalani Foundation is a nonprofit agency providing mentoring programs for middle and high school youth in. The program will form partnerships with local school districts and the juvenile court system. Zalani Foundation’s goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future.

Personal Respect

Through repeated failures in the classroom and the development of destructive habits, at-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. To accomplish this goal, young people must be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect.

Empowerment is Key

The program that is in direct response to the growing number of young people that are either falling through the cracks at school or are already entangled with the juvenile court system. The goal of the program is to identify youths who are going to have a turbulent transition to adulthood and offer positive support system to avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives.

'Out of The Mountain of Despair, a Stone of Hope'

Martin Luther King Jr.

Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Our Focus

‘It’s Never To Late For New Beginnings’

The focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same; empower the young person to make positive changes in his/her life. 

Zalani Foundation will focus primarily on middle school youths. It is projected that within three years, 50% of the system’s students will be in middle school. This age group is particularly problematic and a perfect time for mentoring to be effective.

The Importance of Mentors

'Every New Beginning, Comes From Another Beginning's End'

Youth are matched with a caring adult volunteer who is trained to focus on positive reinforcement, trust-building, and the achievement of goals, by engaging youth in one-on-one outing and group adventures in the community. Mentors and youth agree to meet for between 10-15 hours per month for a full year. Ongoing training will continue with mentors on individual case management throughout the year. In addition, will have monthly mentor support meetings.
