One Child. One Friend. 12+ years, no matter what.

Every child, no matter who they are or where they live, has dreams of doing big things. They all have unique talents, and they each face obstacles on their journey to success. But sadly, some face larger hurdles than others.

“The Power of One” video shares the story of our children and the extraordinary relationship they build with Friends — our salaried professional mentors — over the course of 12+ years, from kindergarten through high school graduation.

Friends of the Children is growing rapidly as communities across the country are experiencing the power of how “One” changes a child's story: One Friend. One Child. 12+ years, no matter what.
