For 150 years, YMCA of Silicon Valley has joined together with donors like you to respond to the changing needs of our community - transforming lives and building brighter futures for generations of youth, families and individuals.

PROJECT CORNERSTONE’S mission is to engage adults and youth to change our schools and communities into environments where all youth develop the skills for social and academic success. Together we can empower families and children to learn, grow and thrive.

Learn how Project Cornerstone gives young people the skills to effectively deal with bullying.

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.

Supported by Annual Campaign, Project Cornerstone builds a web of support around children and teens in Silicon Valley so they grow into healthy, caring and responsible adults. Every month, Tracy volunteers to read and discuss a book in an elementary school classroom as part of the Asset Building Champions program.

"I read a book on diversity and inclusion and was amazed to discover the students did not need any explanation. Instead, I left the classroom with a better understanding. These young students taught me that ‘diversity is the mix: inclusion is making it work,’ and ‘diversity is not about how we differ but is about embracing one another’s uniqueness.'"

Your donation helps Project Cornerstone to impact 78,000 children and teens each month.
