Our Non-Profit # 68-0447992  

     The mission of NERDS is to support the peer-to-peer mentoring clubs currently in place, that focus on education, culture, and community service.
     100% of NERDS participants have reported NERDS being a positive influence in their lives. Our programming includes high school mentoring to support education & emotional health, + we are now open to all age cultural gatherings, and engagement with positive, sober, and educated role models.
      A great majority of NERDS students are living with situations that label us “at-risk” and often create obsticles preventing admission to college or being employed. We provide them the opportunity to remain in school, succeed, graduate and assist them in plans for their future.  
          After 6 years of growth and invitations to create NERDS groups nationwide, we've decided to shift our focus from growing NERDS to EMPOWERMENT of Natives across North America!
     Dahkota Brown, along with his brother Dahlton, have begun working with youth groups across the country to spread the mission of NERDS, while motivating Native youth of all backgrounds to seek leadership opportunities in their community and school settings. 
      While we will continue direct services to the NERDS groups of Amador County, where we call home, we will now focus on using the NERDS name, logo, and mission statement to empower Native youth no matter where they live!
     We hope to use NERDS as a “rallying cry” to call attention to the plight of Native youth, while also encouraging Native youth to help fix the problems they see affecting their lives. 
Please help the Native students in NERDS reach a brighter future and see that people believe in them because without Your generous donations, we can't provide the services the children desperately need!

Thank You - Sincerely
Dahkota & Dahlton Brown
