Impact Pendleton is a nonprofit organization in Pendleton, Oregon. We serve the community through the Impact Mentoring Program. A mentor is someone who walks alongside a family for at least 1 year, to help each child reach his or her full potential.
Developing relationships with caring and supportive adults through mentoring is a key tool through which we can help these young people achieve their dreams . The promise of a generation depends on our efforts to reconnect these young people to education and career opportunities.
