When people are asked, “What is our community’s most valuable asset?” - The answer is our children.

The most important investment to ensure a positive future is in our children.  
 
Education is not just about focusing on school curriculum, but also about achieving emotional maturity – a kind of young maturity that comes from being mentored, guided, and counseled by adults who are emotionally mature, capable, thoughtful, and wise.

In addition to providing opportunities for children to learn life-skills, SMILE’s mission includes making sure the adults helping our young people master life-skills know all they can about how best to raise our children to the level of emotional maturity we all respect: a child who is thoughtful, reflective, kind, civil, respectful of others, and who has the self-confidence to bounce back from life’s disappointments and move forward to new challenges and a bright future. 
 
We at SMILE need your help to do this important work.  By giving to SMILE you give to your community and you’re helping to ensure a bright future for our young people and future generations. 

The work done by SMILE is through highly experienced, dedicated professionals who volunteer their time to ensure that donations are maximized towards helping our youth become empowered and resilient - creating a stronger community.
