At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. PROJECT CORNERSTONE’S mission is to engage adults and youth to change our schools and communities into environments where all youth develop essential skills for social and academic success. Our greatest resource in pursuing this mission is the thousands of volunteers and partners who work alongside us every day.

Together, we can empower families and children to learn, grow, and thrive..

Your gift builds brighter futures and stronger communities for generations to come.

All youth deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity to intentionally build developmental assets. Our programs work directly and indirectly with youth to build a web of support so all youth can thrive.

Learn how Project Cornerstone engages thousands of parent volunteers to help create a caring school culture.

We engage parents to be caring adults in school communities to help build key developmental assets in children. In these programs, adults share specially selected books and lead activities and discussions that help students understand how to develop strong friendships, stop bullying and create a common language to discuss behaviors at their school.

Our donors build community so all youth can thrive.

8th grader Fabian Martinez joined Project Cornerstone in elementary school, when his mother became a Los Dichos volunteer. His mother’s influence in the classroom gave him the courage to proudly embrace his background and respect differences in himself and others.

“Los Dichos helped me better understand my Latino culture and diverse traditions that I had not learned about inside the classroom. The Los Dichos program taught me that people have different origins, but we are all created equally and we should all respect each other.”

Fabian and his classmates developed a strong moral foundation through the guiding lessons of the Los Dichos program, made possible by generous donors.
