My One Step a la Vez
600 saratoga st
We serve the youth of Fillmore and Piru in the Santa Clara River Valley of Southern California with a variety of Programs that match area youth with adult mentors and high school Big Brothers and Big Sisters with younger Little Brothers and Little Sisters.
We operate the teen directed and run One Step Center.
The name One Step A La Vez was chosen by Fillmore-Piru youth to show that you can always take one step at a time toward a positive future. It includes both English and Spanish to reflect and value the dual heritage of our community.
The Fillmore-Piru Mentoring Program is a part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. One Step A La Vez is a committee composed of 12 high school youth who started in 2004 to look into improved mental health care for the youth of Fillmore and Piru.
