Our Mentors and Partners

With mentor support, students develop a broader understanding of establishing goals and taking advantage of future opportunities. By working with school faculty and local area partners, we’ve designed dynamic interactive activities, presentations, educational worksheets and projects to engage students to reinforce and sustain learning.



Our Mission

Despite the curveballs that may come their way, everyone should be given a chance in life regardless of resources or geography. The Wood Family Foundation facilitates relationships that provide support and opportunities to empower youth and their families to succeed in life.

Pitch In Mother

I was really blessed and impressed that Kerry and Sarah were both so down to earth, and working in the trenches with all the volunteers.  Ever since then, I try to help out and support WFF whenever I can, and mentoring for Pitch In is one way I can help.
