Your support makes a difference for every student in every school! 
Mentor ONE student, Change TWO lives!
Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity at one of our schools?  Become a VOICE Mentor!
Here is what our volunteers like best about their mentoring experiences:
"Helping students become more confident in their abilities"
"Working with the little girl I mentor brightens my week"
"Being part of the student's life - to listen and encourage and share my experiences with them"
"Making a connection with a student and gaining their trust"
"That I can provide a bit of positivity and encouragement to a kid who might be struggling"
"Connecting with a child, one-to-one, through VOICE has been such a joy!"
Discover the benefits of making a new friend; become a nurturer of possibilities for a student!
Join our mentor team today! Contact VOICE staff at voice@isfdn.org.

Highlands Day
Once upon a time, in a village on a hillside in the land of Issaquah, 
the people declared, "Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  
The 26th day of the month of August, in the year of two-thousand-seventeen, has been pronounced Highlands Day!"
Once again, one of the best family community events of the summer, 
Highlands Day is coming up on August 26th, 12pm-4pm. The Foundation will be there supporting the community and letting you know how we support our kids and help them reach limitless opportunities!  Come visit us at our booth and learn more!
