'The Best Time for a New Beginning is Now'

Zalani Foundation, that have already been identified as at-risk, an opportunity to work with a caring mentor to improve their ability to develop a positive attitude towards their future. 


Trailblazers our central program. At-risk middle school students and their mentors participate in a structured program of support. Students and their mentors participate in an energizing retreat, followed by a seven month structured program that includes monthly team-building and group activities. The program ends with a graduation but the mentor and youth remain together for the following five months.


Turnaround focuses on students who are chronically suspended from middle and high schools. The goal of the program is to rekindle the youth’s commitment to learning and being successful in the classroom. By empowering young people to finish school, mentors are improving the student’s success in the work world as adults. Mentors assist students to secceed.

'Rise Above the Storm and You Will Find the Sunshine'

The long-term goal of Zalani Foundation is to empower the young person to break the habits that are leading to trouble in school and in the streets and also improve service on smmes that need support.


Higher Ground engages youth involved in the juvenile court system. The mentoring relationship is utilized to establish a program of change in the young person’s life. The mentor encourages goal-setting, self discipline, and skill development that improves the young person’s sense of hopefulness. Mentors and youth work one-on-one for a year and are also offered opportunities to participate in monthly group activities and outings.

Buddy System

The buddy system allows the youth to find common ground by teaching appropriate social skills such as conflict resolution and managing emotions, and communication. This will be done by using different activities such as playing table tennis, table football etc. 

The Importance of Mentors

'Your Life is Your Creation'

Zalani Foundation provides mentors that serve as developmental role models for young people looking for direction. Sometimes it is as easy as a young person identifying with his mentor rather than a person involved in criminal or destructive activities.
