Danny Mendoza founded TWR in 2008 while still in college. After his 9 year-old cousin who was living in a car at the time, reached out, Danny did everything he could to help. Government agencies denied him due to Federal regulations. There were also no organizations like TWR that welcomed young people to join. Danny always had aspirations of seeking positive change, but when he could not find a place to take him on as volunteer at a young age; Danny was left disheartened.
After telling others about his vision, Danny was inspired by encouragement from friends and colleagues to use his ambition to help others and start something himself. From that came Together We Rise. There weren't many organizations around that could help children like his cousin, and certainly none that would allow someone as young as Danny, a role large enough to make a substantial difference. So Danny decided to start his own charity that could help children in foster care while mobilizing young people to make a difference in the world.

Danny Mendoza, the founder of TWR, hates to admit it, but he was much star struck himself. All this awesomeness wouldn't have been made possible without the help of our volunteers at Crown Toyota, Simplicity Bank and all our other supporters.

YSA honors Danny Mendoza, 24, of Chino, California as an Everyday Young Hero for his dedication to helping children in foster care in the United States.
As a 19-year-old college student, Mendoza founded Together We Rise, a non-profit organization "dedicated to transforming the way youth navigate through the foster care system in America."
Mendoza was inspired to help the youth in foster care after his 9-year-old cousin was living in his car. Desperate to help, Mendoza found there were no organizations that welcomed young people to join in helping the foster care population.
Ambitious and committed to helping those in need, Mendoza began Together We Rise to help children in foster care and to mobilize young people to make a difference in the world. The organization has impacted the lives of over 7,000 children and has mobilized hundreds of youth volunteers.
Together We Rise provides children with sports equipment, bicycles, and suitcases to aid the children in traveling from home to home.
Mendoza and his team also provide foster youth with resources and guidance necessary to begin the processes of applying for jobs, to colleges and for housing through the Aging Out Program.
Together We Rise has impacted the lives of 7,000 children and counting. The TWR team plans to work with local legislators to empower them to be involved in improving the lives of the foster youth.
For his dedication to improving the lives of children in foster care, we honor Danny Mendoza as an Everyday Young Hero.
