By Ourselves We are Good But We Become Great When We Work Together
The Greater Houston Mentoring Alliance is an alliance made up of youth mentoring organizations (elementary to 24 years of age) in the Greater Houston area. We’ve identified over 90 youth mentoring organizations in the Greater Houston Area and we know that each organization working by itself will continue to do good things, but we also know that we will only be able to scale the impact within the youth mentoring community when we work together.
