Imagine Changing a Young Person's Life Trajectory!

 Meet Ally, one of the many young people introduced to ALMS through the Toastmasters Leadership Program we provided Pioneer High School in 2022. She remained active with ALMS through Movie Night and the Job Club during the summer of 2023. When we first met Ally, it took three weeks to hear her voice. Her only form of communication was to shake her head, even though she attended the workshops to find her voice. As we earned Ally’s trust, she began to open up, and we discovered an energetic little girl who wanted to grow up and feel safe. One day, we learned of Ally’s baking passion and dream of owning a bakery. The video tells the rest of the story. Go to our website to hear the latest report from Ally.

The Speed of Trust is a two-week intensive after-school program that runs from Monday to Friday, designed for high school juniors or seniors. This program aims to teach and discuss the concept of trust, providing young adults with essential skills that can help them jump-start their careers and adult life. The curriculum is based on the book "The Speed of Trust" by Stephen M.R. Covey. The program focuses on two primary areas: first, it teaches students what employers are looking for in a trustworthy employee, which can help them earn promotions and better pay in the future. Second, it helps students recognize and avoid individuals who are not trustworthy in their personal lives, which can guide them in making wise choices when it comes to friends and future partners.

All Leaders Must Serve is a mentoring organization that helps young adults between the ages of 15 and 25 to develop job readiness and life skills. We empower them with work ethic, character development, and communication skills, to help them secure, maintain and excel in their careers. Since 2015, we have been working towards addressing the social, emotional, and financial challenges faced by youth. However, due to the pandemic, social media and isolation, many young people in our community are struggling to transition into adulthood. Some have been isolated for a long time, even before the pandemic. Matthew, ALMS' Intern, was one of those students. He shared his story during the 2023 ALMS Annual Dinner. Although this is a short version of his story, it highlights the difficulties young people face in today's world.

Giving Activity


All Leaders Must Serve (ALMS) is a mentor organization that empowers young adults, ages 15-25 through job readiness soft skills to become self-sufficient, prepared for living-wage jobs, and to give back to their communities.


In 2024, through Yolo County's ROADMAP TO THE FUTURE initiative, ALMS will reach young adults throughout Yolo County, including West Sacramento, Davis, Winters, Esparto, and Woodland.

ALMS is known for our labor of love and for prioritizing youth over all else. Our goals are as follows:

The information is adapted to the ALMS program to give students a head start in their adult life, with a funding incentive for perfect attendance. Both Pioneer and Woodland High School have had 10 out of 10 perfect attendance for this program. This program is available throughout Yolo County.
