Our mission is to help young people understand their individual: mental, emotional and physical needs through the practices of proper mentoring. Our vision is to empower a generation of community leaders who live a balanced, purposeful and wholesome life.
In 2007, Mayra Zaragoza, still a high school student, established Young Warriors Youth Mentoring Program, under the umbrella of, Tia Chucha's Cultural Center & Bookstore with the help of the co-founder and know author Luis J Rodriguez. Young Warriors was created to meet the needs of the young people living in the low-income communities of the northeast San Fernando Valley. The need being: a safe, judgment-free space, in which young people from all walk of life could coexist, learn from each other, mature and contribute to the betterment of themselves and community.
