THE first serve engagement PROGRAM
Our innovative First Serve Engagement Program is changing the world of mentoring and youth development. First Serve pays, equips, and trains high school students to mentor children in their own communities. They are taught self-awareness, mindfulness, and compassion. We build upon this foundation with sports, education, career development, financial literacy, homework help, and mentoring.
Meet the mentors
Our Engagement Program has nearly 50 amazing mentors who pour into our students every single day. Here a few that we have chosen to highlight!
If I can inspire one child, I can inspire a million to come. First Serve is my opportunity to make a difference in my community.
It is amazing how I went into the mentorship program thinking that I would only invest into the kids. I didn't think about how much this program would pour into me.
What you do has a far greater impact than what you say. I hope the kids have seen my actions and learned from them.

I love coming to First Serve because we have fun and I get to hang out with big kids. It is so awesome
Crafts are the best. The other day, we made dream catchers. I took mine home and my whole family loved it!
I have been coming to First Serve for over two years. I'm going to work here someday.
